Mrs. Kirkland from West Jordan UT is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Around the World with a New Rug

My students need a well made rug to sit on during shared activities. I have chosen one with the world map and international flags to encourage interest in other cultures.

My Students

There is nothing nicer in a classroom than quality time spent sitting together on the rug sharing information and ideas with students. It can be a magical time.

Our second grade class is made up of a diverse group of enthusiastic seven and eight year old children.

Many of them have come to the United States from other countries and I try to use that as a chance to learn about other cultures.

We need a save rug for our classroom and I think this one is perfect. It will encourage my students to share and learn about other countries and cultures.

My Project

I have been told that the rugs I have in my classroom, although cute, are not thick enough to meet safety standards. I want to have a safe learning environment where children are comfortable at both their desks and during carpet time. Basically we need at least one nice rug and I believe that the one I have selected for this project is a perfect learning tool! It has a world map surrounded by flags from various countries.

I like to teach my students about other cultures and this rug is perfect for encouraging cultural learning.

I can just imagine how excited my students will be when I read to them about a holiday in another country or the customs when a child looses a tooth and they will be able to identify the flag and the location of the country on the carpet. I look forward to many exciting learning lessons using this rug!
