Ms. Ogutuga from Stone Mountain GA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

With One Carpet...We Can Dance, and Learn!

My students need a new rectangle carpet for our circle time because the carpet we have is old, and nasty. We also need these numbers and letter locks that would enhance their learning.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I have some of the best students in my classroom. Their enthusiasm to learn pushes me to provide the necessities for them to ensure that they reach their developmental goals. They are extremely creative and spontaneous.

My students enjoy story time, music and movement and exploring the different centers in our classroom.

I would love to add more to our centers that would better enhance their learning. All 22 of my students are some of the smartest four-year-olds that anyone would come across.

My Project

The rectangle carpet will make it more comfortable for the students to sit on and not worry about the stains that are on it. The number and alphabet locks will enhance students' learning and help them in recognizing letters and numbers while at the same time using their fine motor skills to lock and unlock; it will also be a fun activity for them to do.

My students will greatly appreciate our new classroom materials.

Your donations will greatly impact the students' learning and you will be a part of their achievement. Any donation is greatly appreciated. Thank You.
