My Students

First grade is full of growth! It is predominantly a year for reading and social development. In August students are beginning readers and communicators. By May they are immersed in chapter books and using the lessons learn through those books to support their social skills in real life situations.

My students are curious, hardworking, and eager to learn everyday!

They love sharing stories about their lives and discussing characters from our books. Also, my favorite trait of all, supporting each other with encouraging words!

My Project

A classroom carpet is where students gather for each lesson and learn new concepts. The carpet is used constantly each and every day. From whole group read aloud, to number talks; the carpet is the heart of the classroom! Currently, I have a small oval carpet that fits only half my students. I have heard some students make comments about not being able to sit on the rug. I make sure to rotate seats monthly, however I worry they still feel left out when they are not on the carpet.

A carpet encourages a welcoming environment!

I want every student in my classroom to feel comfortable and valued. I believe that having a large rectangular carpet with individual squares will give each student the feeling of belonging in our room. It will be a little place they can call their own! With your donations towards this carpet I can ensure that each child feels included in our classroom.
