Mrs. Apperson from Lisbon CT is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Spotty Place to Sit

My students need a large carpet to sit and learn on.

My Students

My students are full of life and energy. To them, our classroom is a safe place for them to be themselves, have fun, and learn what it takes to be a successful learner. Every morning, we sing the same song, telling each other we're smart, we're loved, and we're ready to learn!

It has been a trying year for me this year, due to multiple surgeries.

My students have been extremely patient and understanding with all my absences.

We live in a small town, with a limited budget for supplies. Often times I purchase my own supplies, which is fine, but I am not able to supply as much as I need.

My Project

My students are very active and sitting at their desks to learn is not an option. The requested carpet will provide my 21 first graders a space to move and feel comfortable in our learning environment. This carpet has circles to provide a space for their own "bubbles".

Your donation to this project will provide a space for my students to read, listen, and pay attention during classroom instruction.

By being able to gift them with this carpet to make their listening easier and more comfortable will provide them the opportunity to continue to work hard. A little appreciation goes a long way to students and my students give so much.
