A Place to Learn

My students need a new rug to use for circle time and daily learning.

My Students

Learning should be fun and exciting - not hard and uncomfortable.

My 3rd grade students are a diverse mix of children from different cultural, linguistic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Yet they all come to school every day with the same intent - to grow and learn. I work at a low-income school and have a large number of English Language Learners and students with Special Needs who already have a harder time focusing attention during large group circle time. Help make learning easier by giving them a beautiful place to learn.

My Project

When was the last time you had to sit on a hard concrete floor? When students are uncomfortable, they focus on that rather than learning new materials. Circle time is a daily activity, occurring multiple times each day. Student's shouldn't dread circle time because it means they have to sit on the hard, cold floor. They should be excited, comfortable, and fully engaged in their learning!

A rug for our classroom will be used all day, every day!

The bright color will help liven up the class and serve as a warm, welcoming place for the class to gather and students to work. It will service not only this classroom, but each child that enters the classroom for years to come.
