Ms. Curry from Burlington NC is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading Rainbow Rug

My students need a bigger carpet so they all have their own space.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are a very energetic and eager to learn group. They are learning to read, write, and count. They have made great progress since starting school. It brings me great joy to see how far they have come.

Kindergarten is the foundation of learning and it is such fun to watch their foundations grow at such a fast pace.

My students have done well learning to work together as a community, being kind, caring and respectful to one another.

My Project

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve student attention but you will also help them academically. You will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

The rug allows them to have their own personal space, which, as you can see in our photo, many students do not have that space.

The rug will allow students to learn better during a whole group math or literacy lesson or read aloud. Students will be able to avoid any problems by sitting in their space and focusing, to increase their learning while at school. Thank you in advance!
