Having a classroom meeting spot is a necessity in kindergarten. The current carpet area is getting worn and definitely showing its age. Kindergarten age children are just beginning to understand how to learn in a group setting, and having a comfortable carpet area for them to begin group learning is essential. In my classroom, the majority of my student's learning time is done at our meeting spot on the carpet, and it would increase their comfort with learning if their physical environment were comfortable as well. A comfortable carpet in a well-designed carpet area will reduce the amount of wiggling, encourage the children to maintain their personal boundaries, and allow them to learn more effectively in a group setting. This space will provide a comfortable learning environment, but will also encourage space for small group teaching/learning, including partner reading spaces. Kindergarten is the entry point of group learning experiences for many children, and a positive learning experience in kindergarten can set the stage for many successful future learning encounters. Research shows that a positive kindergarten experience can carry a child through to positive learning experiences throughout their school career. The carpet will assist in providing high-quality learning spaces for children for multiple years.
