The Perfect Place to Sit, Read, Learn, and Collaborate!

Help me give my students this large classroom carpet so that they have more places in our classroom to sit together and collaborate, or to just read their favorite book!

My Students

I have 18 future leaders in my classroom! This group of students is so eager and hungry to learn as much as they can every single day. They are self-motivated and they love to be challenged. Their excitement for learning motivates me to be the best teacher I can be!

The best quality that my students have is their willingness to go above and beyond to help each other in our very diverse classroom with a wide range of ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds.

They truly work as a team and encourage each other to take their learning a step further or to just be there to lend a hand when someone is struggling. I love that they are learning and growing from each other!

My Project

We are constantly looking for places for my students to collaborate and work together, or to just relax and read their favorite book. First graders need to move throughout the day. This carpet would provide extra seating for more learning to take place every single day.

I love watching my students learn from each other and this carpet would allow more of that to take place in my classroom.

My class also enjoys sitting in a big circle on the floor each week to share stories that are important to them. This carpet would be used in so many ways but this is most likely the most important. Share Circle allows us to get to know one another better and brings us closer as a class.
