Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a second grade teacher in San Jose, California. We are a title one school and my students are primarily Spanish speaking. As a result, I teach in both English and Spanish. A large portion of my day is spent in group instruction. As a result, the children spend a lot of time sitting on the floor together while I teach. Second graders are social and sweet, and they love to talk to each other. I think that the time we spend together on the carpet would be more beneficial if we had a large rug to define our meeting space and set clear boundaries for the children. A rug would also make the time spent on the floor together more comfortable as it would provide some cushion and cleanliness for my students. The style of rug that I have choosen accommodates 20 students comfortably, so their knees do not touch when they are sitting cross legged. Please help me make this a reality for my students! Thank you so much for your consideration and help.
