Mrs. Rodriguez from Van Nuys CA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a new classroom rug. It will provide them a place to come together as a classroom community during whole group activities.
The students in my class are hard working, show perseverance, and have good character. They are enthusiastic learners who have a passion for learning and living. My school is located in the heart of a community in a busy city in Southern California. A majority of our students are of Latin descent and come from homes where Spanish is the primary language spoken.
My students come from low-income, economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. As if suffering from the effects of poverty wasn't enough, many of my students are being exposed to domestic violence, child abuse, neglect, lack of health care, hunger, homelessness, and substance abuse. Their families do not have access to resources and there is very little support at home. Nevertheless, my students show an appreciative joy and have a positive attitude when they come to school each day.
I am asking for a new area rug that would replace the old and stained rug my students have to sit on, every day. The rug I have right now is an essential part of my classroom, but unfortunately through the years it's becoming somewhat unsafe since it began to tear. The rug is the meeting place for many important activities during the day such as calendar time, phonemic awareness lessons, and story time. Lots of learning happens on the rug.
The rug is a focal community building place where the magic of learning takes place.
My students will have a new rug to gather and learn with each other during center time, as well as obtain new knowledge through out the day. Please help me provide my students a new rug to ensure they are safe and comfortable while they are learning.
