Ms. Thompson from Melbourne FL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sit, Stay, Learn!

My students need the Flex-Space Comfy Rectangular Classroom Carpet and the Soft Seats to sit comfortably when they learn and when we have our Morning Meetings.

My Students

I teach a variety of fifth grade students ranging from exceptional education students to general education students. All of my students enjoy learning through many different modalities and come to school excited and ready to learn every single day. I have always enjoyed teaching the intermediate age groups because I learn from them just as much as they learn from me.

My students come from a low income area, but that doesn't prevent them all from having big dreams.

The students at my school are supportive of each other's goals and encourage younger students to work hard to become successful. I feel so grateful to work with such an inspiring group of students.

My Project

My students all have different learning styles. Some students prefer to learn or work while sitting on the floor in the classroom. I would like these students to have a comfortable place in our classroom to learn. The Flex-Space Comfy Rectangular Classroom Carpet and the Soft Seats will allow many of my students to learn at their full potential. The Comfy Classroom Carpet will also allow my class to work as a whole unit for literature circles and novel studies.

I enjoy watching my students learn in their own unique ways and these supplies will help them thrive.

Your help and support of my students' needs will impact their learning for them to reach their full potential.
