My students need an area rug for our gatherings around our SMART Board. We need a rug that is durable and will last for many years to come.

My Students

Our classroom was lucky enough to recently receive a SMART board. It has completely changed the way I teach. While my 3rd graders used to spent a lot of time sitting in their desks, we now spend more time gathering on the floor.

My students come from very diverse backgrounds.

Our school is tiny and located just outside Chicago. My 3rd graders are eager to learn and especially excited about our new SMART board. We use it for about 80% of our day. Gone are the days of sitting in desks and raising our hands. Now, we gather on the floor and use the "random name generator" to select students for answering questions.

My Project

The United States area rug from Lakeshore Learning is not only beautiful, but comes with a 10 year guarantee. It is something my students will use on a daily basis. Not only will it make our classroom bright and cheery, it is highly functional as well.

By donating to this project, you will be providing for students for years to come.

This area rug will be used on a daily basis by my entire class. This is an item that I would not be able to purchase on my own due to its cost.
