Mrs. Glasgow from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Rug Time Learning

My students need a classroom rug. The advantages of having a rug is far beyond having just a place to sit. It is used as a place to come together as a whole group.

My Students

My Students: My students face many challenges. Many come from single parent homes with little to no parental support regarding academics. Most families find it difficult to provide the basic needs for their children and Briarwood had many students enrolled in the free and reduced lunch program.

The children that attend our school are comprised of middle to low income families.

Many come from multi-sibling families and a large portion of those families rent their homes. Some have parents that are no longer or never married therefor they frequently travel from parent-to-parent throughout the school week. Many teachers offer free before-after school tutoring to educate the students who lack parental support at home.

My Project

I am requesting an 8' x 10' rug for my classroom. There are certain advantages when using a rug in the classroom. Children are drawn to bright and colorful things and you have a better chance as a teacher of getting and keeping students' attention by being able to have students with you in a whole group area. They are a staple in most of the classrooms that I have taught in.

I had a beautiful classroom rug that I lost in the May 20th tornado.

It was a constant gathering place for whole group time or individual reading time. It was a comforting and inviting space where my students enjoyed laying down to read with a buddy or listening to me read or teach them a lesson.
