Ms. Chow from San Francisco CA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Space For Everyone

My students need A Place for Everyone Classroom Carpet for 30 students.

  • $612 goal

This project expired on January 3, 2011.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Please help provide a space for everyone on our classroom carpet. We currently have a carpet that seats 20 students, but class size has increased to 22 students!

My students attend a public school in a large urban school district.

The population is quite diverse, with many wonderful multi-cultural, multi-lingual and special needs first grade students. Being 5-6 years old, they are very active, curious, playful and love to learn!

My Project

Much of first grade instruction and interaction takes place on the classroom carpet. We preview and review language arts, math and social studies lessons. We have read aloud story time on a daily basis. We have weekly class meetings to promote our Caring Schools Community. The students also like to play games and read on the rug with their friends. The carpet we are currently using has only 20 spaces. Unfortunately, due to the budget crisis, class size has increased from 20 to 22 this year, and will likely increase more in the following year. We also have special needs students that mainstream into our class throughout the day and they will not have a space on the carpet either. Sadly, some students will have to sit outside of the carpet and not feel as included as they should be.

Please help provide a space for everyone on our classroom carpet!

It will help greatly with classroom management and instruction, as well as student interaction, participation and self esteem. Everyone should feel included in the classroom community! Thank you so much for your time and consideration!
