Mrs. Johnson from Haleiwa HI is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Rug for the Twilight Zone Reading Nook.

My students need 1 area rug to get excited about reading! A colorful solar system rug is just what they need to get this reading nook started!

My Students

My students are energetic and full of spirit! They live in a community where they are able to spend a lot of time outdoors, so when they are in the classroom they need a lot of creative, interactive and hands-on learning opportunities to keep them engaged and stimulated.

This group of students need to move around!

I want to provide my students with multiple learning areas within the classroom where they are able to thrive in a creative learning environment that will allow them a way to channel that energy into their learning.

My Project

The rug I selected will provide an inviting and educational base for the reading area I am creating for my 5th graders next year. The Solar System design is a perfect enhancement for our "Reading Adventures" theme. This vibrant rug will not only provide a clean and inviting reading area, but it will also serve as a constant visual that will help the students learn and remember the names and placements of the planets as well as understand that the planets revolve around the sun. I believe children learn a lot from what they observe in their environment (without even realizing they are learning), so my goal is to create a learning environment that naturally produces learning.
