My students will use the carpet to sit on during our morning meetings, as well as during whole group instruction and small group collaborative workstations during math and reading. During our morning meetings, my kindergarten friends will participate in songs, activities, and discussions that will transform our classroom from a classroom of individual learners to a classroom family of learners. Our morning meetings help my students to learn that even though they each come from very different backgrounds, each individual child is an important and valuable part of our classroom family. I have an active group of listeners that thrive off having a defined space on the carpet, as it lessens distractions and helps them develop respect for their own and peers' personal space. This space will be used for whole group activities/instruction in reading and math. The outer ring of letters and pictures will be utilized during our morning meetings each day to greet one another and hold discussions. The kids will use the letters and pictures as individual markers during this time of the day. The inner spaces will designate a "set spot" for each student, but also can be used to review colors and graph.
