My students have my whole heart. I am teaching second grade math for the first year after teaching first grade for many. I have around 40 fabulous kids in my classroom throughout the day! We are a Title I school due to the poverty and economic rates in this area. Our county has limited funds to provide for classroom furniture and those extra things that make a classroom go round. My students love to gather at the carpet and we have deep discussions about life and class there.
I want all my children to feel right at home when they come in.
In need for a new rug would set up our class for an environment for learning. Having a new class size rug will give students a clean, comfortable, and spacious place to sit during group time.
It will help students to focus and pique their interest in learning! It will be our class meeting place. The rug will give our class a space to play games, workplaces, listening to a book read by the teacher, interact within small/large groups, and reading/math activities. The rug will provide a workspace for children to create and learn on!
The rug will be the central place where we gather many many times a day to teach, work together as a team, read, do math and much more. This carpet will add the right touch for the students' central gathering. I recently had to move classrooms and redid the entire room. This rug will also blend nicely into the new classroom. Rugs are an important part of making my students feel comfortable! They are at home when they are here!
A new rug will help to create a warm and inviting environment for the students entering the classroom on a daily basis!
