My students need a clearly defined space on the carpet in order to participate in large group activities.

I teach the most special students! Children ages two years, ten months to five years old come to preschool to learn and develop. The students in my program experience developmental and communication delays. They come to preschool to learn how to communicate, how to play with each other, learn school readiness skills, learn preschool concepts and learn other skills their typically developing peers may have already developed.
I love to see the excitement and smiles on all the preschoolers' faces as they get off the bus and run to all the preschool staff!
These children are some of the most loving and challenging children. They make everyday worth it! Children in my classroom experience Autism, visual impairments, hearing impairments, cognitive delays, physical impairments, behavioral and social delays. As children are identified, they may be enrolled in my classroom anytime in the year. Due to earlier identification, more children are receiving effective early intervention which leads to more success in school. My goal is to make preschool fun, exciting and a great experience!
Over the years, my current carpet has become worn and faded. It is also too small for the many students I serve throughout the school year. I have started to put character duct tape around the carpet for the students to sit on. Last year, the tape left a sticky residue that no one wants to sit on.
The students need a defined space for their bodies in order to participate and learn during large group activities.
Vibrant and bright colors make large group activities more inviting. A color carpet with defined spots can be used to teach colors and be used in a variety of academic games.
