My students need a rug to sit on for whole class group discussions, morning meetings and lessons on the smart board.

My Students

In just one week, my classroom will be comprised of 12 special and incredible students. Each child loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best varies. I incorporate a variety of learning strategies, small group work, and alternative seating to make sure each student's needs are being met! I want my classroom to feel comfortable and friendly so each child feels ready to learn!

While I have furniture and supplies in my classroom, there is one piece that is missing in order to make the classroom a wonderful environment.

Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated!

My Project

A classroom rug will allow my students to feel safe and comfortable in their classroom environment. It will let them learn choices of where to sit for lessons and how to keep your hands to yourself. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in students when they are given a choice in their seating and are comfortable when sitting for lessons on the floor. Students are more engaged and are ready to learn when they feel comfortable and safe.

The product that I have selected will show my students how lessons on the rug can be fun and exciting, while also teaching about personal space and behaving.
