Mrs. Reid from Greenville SC is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

S is for Special Spot

My students need a large rug for our morning meetings, interactive read alouds and group lesson time. We love to have our own "special spot" to gather and share our ideas.

My Students

I will be teaching kindergarten for the first time. My challenge is to take a former gifted and talented classroom and create an inspiring kindergarten classroom.

My new school is a Title 1 school in South Carolina where 97 percent receive free breakfast and lunch.

There will be 20-25 children who will be filled with the wonder of learning. Most will have limited resources at home and will have many challenges to overcome.

I am so excited to begin this challenge myself and want my students to have everything they need for success.

My Project

In kindergarten it’s extremely important that the class has a comfortable area for meetings and whole group discussions. This rug will be used as a safe and comfortable space in my classroom for the children to discuss and listen to one another. This rug will give them an opportunity to have a "special spot" . It’s very important for me as a teacher to foster a love for sharing and learning in my students. This rug will allow them to have their "special spot" to develop their love of learning.

Your generous donation to our project will significantly help my kindergarten students.

The will have the special comfortable spot they need to develop a love a learning through group interaction.

This super cute rug will help them feel at home in our “Eric Carle” inspired class. I know they will love learning sitting on their “special spot” and believe it will be a great asset to our kindergarten classroom.
