Classroom Carpet

Help me give my students a new classroom rug for circle time. We have very old carpet in our classroom and would like a nice new rug to place down for us to use for circle time.

My Students

My students are amazing little humans that have an incredible desire to learn. I teach 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders that often struggle behaviorally.

I want my students to be able to have the best learning environment to fit their needs in a way that calms their behaviors and engages their learning potential.

Although we are a behavior program, I do everything possible to make sure my students know their worth and have every opportunity that others have, sometimes even more!

My Project

For the past few years, we have been implementing class circles in our classrooms. My kids really enjoy time together to talk about themselves, others, and cool things happening in their lives. Right now, we don't have a specific space to use for our circle time.

My students have actually requested we get a circular rug to place in the classroom so we have a definitive place to meet each time we circle up.

This year we are starting a new social skills curriculum that incorporates circle times in both the morning and afternoon. This rug will give my kids a comfy new place to sit and open up with each other.
