My Students

My students are sweet, curious and energetic 6 year olds who love to have flexible seating in the classroom, so they are not confined to their desk chairs.

They love to learn through exploration away from their desks and having a beautiful educational carpet will allow them to do so.

I love allowing students to have the opportunity to learn in different atmospheres, which helps keep them engaged. My students have a love for learning and I am so excited for our school year.

My Project

Picture being 6 years old and being STUCK in a desk chair all day while learning: boring! Now, picture yourself being 6 years old and having a chance to learn while being comfy on a beautiful, educational carpet: exciting!

I love giving my students the chance to choose where they’d like to learn.

Whether it’s during whole group instruction which allows all students to be closer to the board, during partner work time while using manipulatives or reading independently in a cozy spot, a beautiful new carpet will be the perfect asset to our classroom. I can’t wait to see their excitement with this special resource.
