Snug as a Bug on a Rug!

Help me give my students a great carpet space to learn and work together!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Next year, I will have a full classroom of hard working, happy 1st graders! If you know anything about first graders, you know how wiggly they can be!

I teach in Grand Rapids, Michigan at a free and reduced lunch school.

We do our best to stretch every dollar we can, but sometimes, we need a little help!

Please consider donating to my classroom to help my students work collaboratively as they move about the classroom in all subject areas.

My Project

First graders move a LOT and having a bright, fun, and clean carpet on the ground is essential in any lower ed classroom! We have lots of space in our classroom, so this rug will be a wonderful addition and students will make use of it all the time.

I'm moving from 4th to 1st this year and am purchasing a ton of new supplies, decorations and furniture for them to use!

Please consider helping out to make this rug purchase a reality! My firsties will be forever grateful and we will use this carpet daily for calendar time, reading and working together.
