A Carpet Like The One At Home

My students need a clean and calm carpet for our dramatic play center!

My Students

My students are in a Title I preschool and 100% of our students receive free lunch. Many of the students have a parent in the military. The children must meet at-risk criteria to attend this program. The criteria includes family income, identified disabilities, parent employment, and English proficiency.

I provide a creative classroom environment with materials in the learning centers that are empowering students through art.

I also provide science, technology, engineering, and math activities. I believe this will prepare all my students to be successful in kindergarten and beyond.

My Project

This new and clean rug will make a big difference in the way our children learn as it will provide them with a warm, and comfortable place for them to sit while they are in the dramatic play center. Our dramatic play center has an old, smelly, and very busy rug that does not fit the area that it is used for. While pretending to run a household the student will appreciate a carpet that looks more like the ones at home. A more calming patterned rug will allow the students to lose themselves in play and enjoy learning better. The children like to sit on the carpet or lay on the carpet just like they do at home.

This is our most important center of the day and they spend a lot of time in this area of our room.

Your donations will be greatly appreciated, for many years to come.
