My students spend a lot of time on the carpet for instruction. I tried to be creative and tape different colored strips of tape with numbers down to designate seating spots for each student, but 17 days into school the tape and numbers are coming off and my students are distracted by the loose tape.
My first grade students are enthusiastic and eager to learn.
They are supportive as a class and caring towards each other. This class is made up of 30 students from a wide variety of cultures and backgrounds. The classrooms at this school are well used and in need of some care and updating.
With the addition of this 30 student rainbow carpet to my classroom my students will be able to sit and stay within their specified boundaries. It will allow them to be more focused on instruction and not distracted by the tape pealing off the floor. It will be used through out the day for small group and whole class instruction in phonics, reading, math, brain breaks and fun! It will help to create a positive learning environment that invites students to easily collaborate with others around them creating a community of learners.
Donations to this project will greatly improve the learning in my classroom by allowing each student to have their own designated space and boundaries to sit in on the carpet.
My students will feel a sense of belonging to a group because they will be part of the color row they sit on. Students will work together as they will be released to other areas of the classroom by their specific colored row. It will allow for quick and easy transitions and increase learning opportunities.
