My Students

We are encouraged as a community to work together to provide the best learning environment for our students. Our classroom contains 22 students of varying learning modalities and backgrounds, including students with and without disabilities.

Our students come from a low-socioeconomic background and our classroom lacks the comfort needed for ALL my students when we are gathered and seated to learn near our created classroom library.

Our students appreciate reading more chapter books/picture books and benefit from our created classroom library. However, our versatile learners struggle to focus during the independent reading/partner reading/class meetings because our classroom floor gets cold over the winter and causes discomfort for many students.

Therefore, this classroom rug would help all of our students with and without disabilities to gain comfort that can significantly help them to concentrate towards the learning successfully.

Students and teachers would significantly benefit from this classroom rug to sit on when we would be gathered as a class during our read aloud sessions, mini-lessons (literacy, mathematics, science, & social studies), and/or independent reading/partner reading sessions.
