We are Busy Bodies Needing a Rug

My students need a classroom rug for their own personal space to learn.

My Students

I teach first graders in one of the most amazing rural schools in Oklahoma. My students are eager to start their day in a warm and welcoming environment. Some of those, although eager to learn, have backgrounds that vary but they are always trying to help one another whenever possible. We are a Title I school. Half of my students go to Title I for 30 minutes every day, for extra reading help.

My first graders are compassionate students who are always showing love and kindness each day.

They are the most unique people you will meet. I am truly blessed with the best school district for my students to strive in!

My Project

Having a classroom rug will help tremendously with our lessons. In first grade having your own personal space is serious business. A classroom rug will allow my students to have a sense of ownership in a group setting. This will eliminate arguing and invading another person's space.

It is important for a student to feel comfortable so they are able to focus on learning.

This rug will also provide us with a literacy center. For example, students could match sounds with the correct letter of the alphabet. Another activity my students could use with this rug is putting their spelling words in ABC order.

We could really benefit from this rug being in our classroom. It would help academically and socially.

Thank you for supporting my students!
