Ms. Hattaway from Savannah GA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Happy Camper Site Library

Help me give my students a carpet area to sit on during our story time and for them to lounge on during small groups in their library. I want everyone to have a spot.

My Students

My students love when we read stories together. They also love playing games in groups. I will be conducting student learning based centers for balanced literacy. I do not have many materials or resources. We need many things in our room and a carpet large enough for the students for our gathering area is vital. My students will be spending time on the carpet during reading and math groups as well. The carpet I have is too tiny. They end up sitting on the cold, uncomfortable tiles.

My Project

My students spend a lot of time on the carpet we have which is great, but too small for our class. We use it for whole group readings and again throughout the day for various activities. My students need a clean and sanitary carpet to sit and lay on while they read books or listen to stories.

I would also really love to have a magnetic easel that we can use on the carpet for our writing and reviews.

I would use if for everything, especially our magnetic phonics tiles to learn how to spell and build words. Also we use anchor charts and thinking maps for developing their writing skills.

I want my carpet area to be fun, engaging, and comfortable for the students to use every day during our learning time. A nice gathering area is key! Also want everyone to have enough room so we can sit together as a family during our carpet time. This rug looks perfect for us and will tie in great with my "Happy Camper Forest" theme I have been working so hard on! Please help us get the classroom we need and feel comfortable in.
