A Place To Sit, A Place To Learn

My students need a rug to sit on during classroom meetings, read alouds, and instructional time. This particular rug will provide invaluable learning opportunities.

My Students

Imagine walking into school for the first time as a kindergartner and having to sit on the bare hard floor for lessons. I will be a new kindergarten teacher this year and my new classroom has no rug. I believe this rug not only will provide comfort, but will provide learning opportunities as well!

My students will be a class of mixed ethnicities in an inner city school.

They have various backgrounds, some refugees from other countries. My school has a great respect for the diversity this brings and celebrates individual cultures and differences.

My Project

It's hard to learn when you are not comfortable. Not only will the rug provide comfort while I read and teach lessons, the rug itself will be used for lessons! Many of the new kindergarteners will come in not knowing their ABCs. I can envision myself using the rug to teach! I can call a student to 'sit on the letter J,' and so on. I have so many ideas on how I can use this rug for this new class and all the years to come. Many many children will benefit from this donation.

This rug will be the central focus of my classroom.

In primary classrooms the 'rug' area has so much meaning and importance. When students transition from their tables to the class meeting area it's like coming 'home' in the classroom. It's where the 'magic' happens, so to speak. Storytime, class lessons, class meetings, team building exercises, and sharing occur. It will not only create an aesthetically pleasing classroom, it will give students so much more!!
