I teach young artists in a high-needs public school, ranging from grade levels kindergarten through 5th. In the course of a five day school week, over 500 students come into the art room! That is about 100 students a day. It is amazing to see their various strengths in the arts. Incorporating literacy into the art classroom is a crucial aspect of teaching our students! The students love seeing visuals to help spark their minds to create awesome artwork! A reading rug would really help our students to be comfortable on an all tile floor. I hope to create a classroom environment where we are immersed in literacy and art!
In an all tile classroom, students do not currently have a comfortable area to sit on the floor. Having a carpet in the art classroom would provide comfortable seating for group discussions and reading.
We incorporate many books in our art lessons, so it is important to have a place in the classroom where students can sit together and read.
I know students would be appreciative to have a carpet to sit on instead of the cold, hard tile.
Any donations would be greatly appreciated to go toward funding this carpet for our great artists to sit on during art class!
