Ms. T from Lexington OK is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Snug as a Bug in a (Kindergarten) Rug!

Help me give my students a rug for our cold classroom floor. The old one isn't big enough for our large class, and I have students sitting on tile.

My Students

I have 22 (so far) adorable little kiddos. They are very sweet and eager to learn! They absolutely love sitting in the floor and listening to a story and singing songs. We also do most of our learning in the floor. They have very short attention spans. They learn much better when I am right down there with them!

I like to help build a sense of community and family by joining my students in the floor, teaching and learning with them.

I know we are going to have a fantastic year in Kindergarten!

My Project

I am a new teacher to our school district. The classroom that I acquired was nearly empty. I have spent a lot of money trying to fill our empty classroom. I wanted it to feel homey and comfortable for my students. There was not a rug in my classroom. I was able to find an old one in a storage closet. I vacuumed and steam cleaned it several times and cleaned it up the best that I could. I put it in our classroom and thought I was ready to go! Unfortunately, my students do not fit on the rug. I have 3-4 students who have to sit on the tile floor, next to the rug. We would love to be able to sit as a whole class on the rug. The students that are on the bare floor feel excluded and it makes me sad for them.
