A Comfortable Place To Listen and Share

My students need a comfortable carpet to sit on when listening to books, independently reading or drawing.

My Students

You only need to see the smiles on their faces the moment my kindergartners see the paints laid across the table when they walk into my room. Art in my room has no "levels", no pre-requirements, no constraints on creativity. Once they walk through that door they know that everything they do has merit and is cared about.

I love to think of all of my students as artists.

Their natural creative instincts are inspiring. They are always willing to try and explore new concepts and materials and that is what makes my classroom such a special place.

My students are in grades Pre-K through 6th, this is the only time in their lives they get to truly express themselves through art. I have roughly 470 students in that grade range and they all come to art once a week. I know art is special to a lot of them and my room has become a sort of reward to come to for students that are struggling in other area's. I want to make the art room a welcoming place for all of them.

My Project

A colorful carpet in the art room will provide students a comfortable place to listen to stories, read a book or draw. It will be a nice place for my students to sit while we go over our learning target or reflect as a group on our art work.

Carpet space is also a nice alternative place to sit when a student needs some quiet time to look at a book or work on a drawing.

Currently the only seating in the art room is at tables. This carpet would provide a nice alternative place for us to gather as a class, small groups or individually.
