We Need Rugs For Comfort: Please Help

My students need rugs to cover the cold hard tiled floor.

My Students

My students are from a critical shortage need area. Although we are without the basic materials for a music class, the students still come to class eager and willing to learn. My music students show how remarkable they are time and time again by refusing to let obstacles define their potential.

We desperately need the rugs to replace the old hard chairs and to cover the cold floor.

A rug for different groups will help greatly with organization and structure.

Donating to this project will help prevent wandering around looking for a place to sit. Students will enter the room and know where to sit based on how they have been grouped according to their voice tones.

My Project

Our classroom needs rugs so that every student has a nice comfortable and warm place to sit in the music room. The class sizes in 3rd and 4th grade are large and the students are bigger kids. This is why we need two rugs.

My students need two rugs to sit on during music class because when doing group work, one rug just would not provide enough room.

There will be more space for groups to comfortably sit. Having two rugs will also help when dividing up the chorus while teaching two part harmony. Thank you for reading my project and please consider helping make my students comfortable.
