My students need a new rug to feel comfortable during circle time.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Do you remember what it was like the first time you sat on a rug during circle time? My kindergarten students have not yet discovered how comfortable and engaging this time can be.
My students are very curious children who love to share and work together.
Unfortunately, most of my students come from low-income homes and recently our school was hit by overcrowding and lack of resources. I have twenty-five students in my class and we are cramped in a small classroom that was never intended for students.
Having a rug available during Circle Time allows opportunities to offer direct information to students while allowing children to experiment and explore materials in order to create their own knowledge. Some activities include singing a morning song and listening to a story. Students can sing the months of the year song to each other without the pressure of having to be constrained to a desk.
With your help my curious kindergartens will get a wonderful feeling of inclusion during Circle Time.
A new rug will make a dramatic difference by allowing students to engage with each other and create a feeling of togetherness during Circle Time.
