A Clean Carpet Nurtures a Welcoming Atmosphere!

Help me give my students a clean carpet. The one we have in the classroom is very old and the stains do not come off.

My Students

My students are amazing! This is a dual language school (Spanish & English). All of my students are very eager to learn Spanish. The majority speak two languages already (English and their native language). In the mornings when we are doing math corner calendar, my students are so bright and always are happy to share their ideas and thoughts. They tell me " I have an answer that's beyond grade level." They love to challenge themselves and enhance their knowledge every day!

My Project

A welcoming atmosphere motivates the learning of a child. My students have a dirty carpet that doesn't fit our floor time space. There are some of my students that sit on the floor during carpet time otherwise they are all on this sad carpet, pushed together. Please help us spruce up our classroom and give the kids the pick me up they deserve starting off the school year right. A new floor time carpet would make a big difference in the atmosphere and mood in our room. When you are at home, you want your common area to be clean and I'm sure that parents understand 21 kids squashed together on a dirty carpet isn't the most desirable situation for learning.
