Mrs. Morton from Leeds AL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading and Relaxing on the Rug

My students need a large rug with enough room for everyone to sit on during whole group instruction, partner work, and free reading time. This would be a wonderful addition to the classroom atmosphere!

My Students

This year, I have the honor of working with 25 students with varying special needs. Each student has individual needs, and no two students are the same. My students come from all different family and cultural backgrounds.

The students I will be working with have a variety of special needs such as autism, ADHD, intellectual disabilities, and specific learning disabilities.

Because of this, it is important to me to have a variety of instructional materials and resources in my classroom to best serve them, best meet their needs, and to make them feel at home.

My Project

In our classroom, my students spend a lot of time on the floor during free reading, partner work, and centers. We currently use flexible seating such as rockers and pillows for the students to sit on during this time, but we do not have enough for the whole class.

A large classroom rug would be a wonderful addition to our classroom in many ways: for whole group instruction, so that each each student would have a spot on the rug to listen and learn their very best; for free reading, to have a comfy spot to curl up with a book; and for partner work and centers, to have a designated spot in the room to work together collaboratively.

This rug would be the central meeting place for the class, and it would make a huge difference for my students!
