Carpet Squares for Flexible Seating

My students need carpet squares as options for places to work around the room.

My Students

I have a diverse class of scholars who enter the classroom each day full of energy and ready to learn. Each student has a unique style of learning, and I want to be able to support each of them with flexible seating options in the classroom.

When I look at my students, I see future scientists, historians, CEOs, writers, bankers, small business owners, teachers, doctors, presidents of corporations, and thinkers who will make a mark in this world.

They are dreamers!

My Project

These carpet squares will give my students options on where to work in the classroom. Much of our classwork consists of individual assignments and students enjoy going off by themselves to work in a quiet area and the squares will allow them to do just that. Students will be able to work anywhere they want and be able to concentrate. Even if they want to work in a group, they can all put the squares together and make a small rug. Carpet squares will be awesome and will allow much more flexibility in my classroom which means much more learning.
