Circle Time!!

My students need a large rug that will provide them with a warm comfortable place to sit when we have community circle, reading time, and other times we spend together on the floor.

I teach a highly energetic group of first graders in a inner city school. We have a high percentage of poverty in our school.

Since first graders are very active, we need to move from our chairs to the floor often just to help maintain focus on learning. Our school is very old and drafty with beautiful hardwood floors, which make sitting on the floor very uncomfortable. I have tried using carpet squares in the past and found they aren't very helpful. We would really love to have a large rug.

Even though we receive funding for supplies, a rug is considered a luxury item and therefore not purchased by the district. You can help provide an inviting and comfortable space for my students to learn. A large rug will make circle time, reading time, and activity time something to really look forward to.

Your generosity will make it possible for my first graders to be warm, comfortable, and happy while mastering the basic concepts taught throughout the year.
