A Magic Carpet: A Classroom Rug for Flexible Seating

Help me give my students flexible seating! Many of my kiddos love to work and stretch out on the floor. However, our hard tile isn't very comfortable! This rug will add comfort and offer a flexible seating option

My Students

I am the teacher of middle school students at an urban school in Wichita, Kansas, where most students receive a free lunch and funds for supplies are limited.

My middle school students like to show their creativity and love for math.

Students in my classroom come from a variety of backgrounds and overcome obstacles to come to school; however, they come every day, encourage each other and learn together. My students work hard and strive to do their best. They are a great group and deserve a classroom environment that is welcoming.

My Project

Our class is always ready for a learning adventure; the only thing we are missing is a carpet to get us there. The classroom carpet is a common meeting area where we learn so many new things.

This rug would be a magical addition to our classroom!

It would provide a clean and comfortable spot for my students to learn and relax!

A classroom rug is much more welcoming than a cold tile floor. My students will use this comfy carpet to learn and sit on while we do group activities. The floors are cold in the school and it will give the children a warm space to interact and grow.
