My Project

In first grade, so much classroom management has to do with engagement. My students are constantly moving between their desks and the carpet. We begin every day on the front rug and dismiss every day from the same spots.

A large rug is a key place for classroom community, small-group engagement, and whole-group comfort.

Today, my rug is used at the beginning of our day for social-emotional learning, at the beginning of our reading lesson, at the beginning of our differentiated instruction lesson, at the beginning and end of our math lessons, and at the very end of the day. Almost all of my direct instruction occurs while students are on the classroom carpet. A teammate of mine has loaned me an old carpet, but I know that she will need it back. Our carpet has become such an important part of our classroom, that I cannot imagine going without it again.

This rug in particular has a ten-year warranty, so I know that it will impact many students beyond this year. I also chose this rug because each sit-spot is perfectly labeled. Students will be able to sit in rows and understand exactly where they should be at all times. I also love that this rug has letters around the edge so that students can quickly transition into circle time by sitting on a letter. Lastly, the educational integration of this rug will allow us to do more engaging activities in both reading and math as we spell words and stand on specific numbers!

My classroom carpet is my favorite place in our room, and I know many of my students share my sentiment. With your support, we will be able to use a carpet of our very own for years to come!
