Big Rug!

The cost of a "My Favorite Rhymes" rug from KidCarpet is $492, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I am a Kindergarten/First grade special education teacher. I work with very low income population. My wish is to have a rug that is welcoming and spacious. Rug time is a very important time throughout the day. We use our rug for morning meetings, read alouds, shared reading etc. I believe that since we do so many activities on the rug that children should have a kid friendly rug that can assist with their learning. This rug will provide a comfortable place for students read with their buddies or by themselves. I believe that the classroom should be a home away from home and this rug will provide the warmth and comfort for my students. Thank you for reading my request.
