Help me give my students a rug large enough to hold all 23 students at one time to gather for read aloud, math routines, and reading and writing workshop. Even 3rd graders enjoy quality time at the carpet.
My students are special because they have such diverse backgrounds and come to school every day with different and unique experiences that add to the dynamic of our classroom. They are creative thinkers, and, above all, they love learning. About 25% of the students at our school are English Learners, and 100% receive free lunches and breakfast.
I love that my students come to school every day with smiles on their faces.
They feel that school is a safe place for them. They inspire me to want to be a better teacher every day. I have the best job in the world.
When you gather your students up for circle time, a carpet in the destination spot can serve as a great anchor. Students won’t question where to sit or spread out very far because the rug becomes the destination and the edges of the rug serve as a defined space.
We spend lots of time time on the floor working together so this rug will be located in our main meeting placed and used numerous time throughout the day.
Our new carpet will be a space where all students have a comfy place to sit while we're learning and working together.
