A Rug for Community

My students need a new rug to have community time and make them feel comfortable in their classroom.

My Students

Give us a comfortable space! Community time is a vital part of the week for students where they can share their personal experiences and feel like they are an important and valued part of the classroom community.

My students are a diverse group of learners who come from many different familial, socioeconomic, and ethnic backgrounds.

They attend a school that welcomes diversity and makes it a goal to support all students. Resources for our school are limited, but our dedicated staff works hard to see that all kids get the materials they need.

My Project

I am requesting a classroom rug that has a world map image. This rug is a great addition to the classroom because it is bright and cheery. It also provides students with a built-in learning experience of world geography. With this rug, I can ask students to sit or stand in specific parts on the map, giving them a spatial awareness of geography and simultaneously providing an effective classroom management tool.

This project is a wonderful way to make my classroom comfortable, attractive, and academically relevant for students.

Keeping the room clean will give the students the impression that they are in a serious place for learning, and will greatly enhance my practice.
