Have you ever had to sit on a dirty floor? This is what my students must do each day in my classroom, we don't have a rug or carpet in my class so my students have to sit on the floor to learn. The floor has dirt from our playground and in the winter it has small puddles of water from boots.
I have a very intelligent and energetic group of youngsters.
They come each day eager to learn new things. The problem is many of them have attention difficulties that can make learning a challenge on most days. My teaching style creates lots of movement which helps with attention difficulties but the problem is our meeting area is not a great place for these students to focus and learn. They are uncomfortable and worry bout getting dirty from the floor. My students work so hard each day to battle these attention issues and I feel that my classroom is not helping them. Let's give these students a comfortable clean place to sit where they can focus on learning not getting dirty.
I am requesting a 9x12 area rug to use as a meeting area in my classroom. This area rug will provide me a place to do interactive read alouds, interactive writing, group check ins, and also it will provide a clean and comfortable place for my students to sit and work independently and in groups. This rug will help bring my classroom together and help bring comfort and learning to my students.
This project is so important to these students because they face so many challenges at home.
I am trying to make learning a challenge that all my students can overcome and feel success. Many of my students don't feel success at home, so please help them feel success at school.
