My students need a new rug so that everyone has their own place to sit.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
How do you divide 15 by 20? You can't! Neither can we! That's why we need a new rug for our classroom so that everyone has a place to sit. We currently have a mat that is six years old and it only has enough room to sit 15 students, however there are 20 students in our class.
This group of first graders are eager to learn.
We have so much to cover in first grade and these students enjoy coming to school to learn. Many of these students come from different backgrounds and face many hardships. A majority of our students are on free and reduced lunch. These students can't help the hardships they face, but as a classroom teacher I want to create a safe and enjoyable environment where students are comfortable and ready to learn.
This new rug will allow all students to have their own place to sit instead of being overcrowded. Since students will have their own place to sit they will be more comfortable and ready to learn. This rug will also help students to review their letters and sounds, as well as allow movement as we sing and dance and play games on the rug.
This rug will allow all students to sit comfortably during the school day to learn.
It is hard having only 15 squares and 20 bodies to fit inside without being overcrowded. Every time we come to the mat there is always a problem with a student in someone's area since we do not have enough room to sit everyone. This rug will provide the space we need now and the growing classes to come.
