My Students

We are an active community of learners who love to move and to work together.

As I sit through a long meeting and realize how much I want to get up and move, I think about my 25 wonderful scholars.

They are movers. They learn best when they have a variety of places to work an learn. However, we need a carpet where each student has their own space but where we can all work together as a community. My scholars love to learn from each other and work together.

My Project

We gather together on the floor at least twice a day. We discuss books and writing strategies and we turn and talk to learn from each other. Up to now, my class has been piecing together a learning space using squares of carpet. This takes a lot of time to get a square and put it down. It also leads to kids often squeezing into small spaces and students sitting too far away. My scholars are ready for a quicker, more effective seating space for our reading and writing workshop time.

A classroom rug will not only help create a positive, cheerful classroom environment - it will ensure each child has adequate space to learn.

It is difficult to pay attention for many children, and being squished on carpet squares and distracted by other children is the last thing they need. The new classroom carpet will provide space for each child and will maximize their learning during workshop time and other group activities.
