I am a third-grade teacher in a public school in Queens. I teach twenty-five very enthusiastic learners. We work together on forming a community of cooperative learners. The students learn to work together to discuss books, solve problems, and support each other in their learning. The students love to have the choice to work in an area other than their desks. They work all over the room--at their desks, at tables, and on the floor and rug. The problem is that the rug we have is in sad shape--old and falling apart. It was a cheap rug to begin with, purchased out of my own pocket. I am asking for your help in purchasing a well-made rug that the students will feel comfortable sitting and working on. The rug area is our central meeting area. Please help make it an area conducive to working and learning. Thank you.
