Mr. Branson from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sharp Carpet

My students need a Sharp Music Rug, to sit on while in class instead of the hard floor.

  • $268 goal

This project expired on January 5, 2019.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I have 330 students twice a week, Pre-k Thru 6 grade. These students are made up of middle to lower income with English language learners and special needs classes.

We are in need of a music symbols carpet so my students do not have to sit on the hard floor.

The carpet also will help teach musical symbols, using it as a resource.

The carpet will also give the room a better feel of a music room.

Please consider this project!

My Project

This Music carpet will give them a nice place to sit and inspire them to learn the symbols that are displayed on the carpet.

Please consider helping these student to feel they have a place to learn and feel apart.

This carpet will help keep the student together and in the same area of the room. Discipline can be a problem with some of our students so the carpet will keep the students contained to a certain area that will help with my harder to deal with students from acting out in class.

I am also excited about being able to teach with this A-Sharp Music Rug, it has a staff and musical symbols that I can use in out lessons.
