I strive to provide a consistent, safe place where students feel loved and accepted. Students engage in intentional, authentic learning experiences that stimulate curiosity and creativity.
Learning should be fun in kindergarten!
I am a kindergarten teacher, at a Title I school in Oklahoma. Our school currently serves approximately 500 students, and includes many special academic programs, as well as, services for students with special needs. Fifty-six percent of our students receive free or reduced priced lunch. I currently have 25 students in my class, who come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. They are diverse in their prior knowledge and skill level. They are curious, intelligent, and spunky, and they love to learn!
A rug is the heart of a classroom, especially in Kindergarten. It is a place for students to gather, learn, grow, and play together. The students in my class love the learning that takes place on the carpet alongside their peers, but it is hard to be a successful learner when your spot is not consistent and often too close to the person next to you. It is hard to be a great learner with distractions, and a classroom rug can help alleviate that.
A lot of learning happens on the carpet.
The "A Place for Everyone Classroom Carpet" will give students a defined area with enough space, and that will set them up to be successful learners in the classroom. Not only will it help them be successful academically, but it will give them social success as well, an important skill in kindergarten. Help us put the heart into our classroom.
