My students need a new classroom rug for whole-group learning! We are moving to a smaller classroom and the rug we have right now is too large and rather shabby.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach in a classroom of special needs students ages 3-5. We are moving to a new classroom next year, which I am so excited about because it has a bathroom for potty training! YAY! But, the room is much smaller than my current room, and our rug is a little...well, a LOT too big for the new space.
My students have a variety of disabilities and need to be in a substantially separate setting to help them meet developmental milestones.
They may have delays, but they are not low on personality! These kids work hard every day to overcome their needs and make progress in the same early childhood curriculum as students without disabilities. Any gift to my classroom is appreciated and cherished by my little ones.
We spend a lot of time on our rug for circle time, story time, whole group math learning and block play. A large percentage of our academic learning takes place on the rug. Many of my students also have motor delays and need a soft place to sit and play. This rug will be essential to our classroom. The one we have is too big. I thought about cutting it in half, but it is getting old and has a lot of tape marks and stains on it. We would really appreciate having a new beautiful rug for whole group time.
All students deserve a beautiful and engaging place to play and learn, even those with disabilities.
Please help me make my classroom the most exciting and inviting place for my students!
