All of us desire for children to be educated in a safe and clean environment. My classroom is safe and it is clean. The entire room is cleaned daily including the floors; however, there is one item that never seems to be clean enough and that is the carpet. I inherited a carpet during my first year of teaching that has been through the fire and back. It is stained beyond repair. We have shampooed the carpet several times but it is time for a new one. I teach kindergarten and the carpet is the main place of instruction. The carpet is our regular meeting area for story time, literacy centers, and circle time. My students spend about 50% of their time on the rug throughout the day, so it is important that they have a clean and sanitary sitting area. We would appreciate the purchase of a rectangular carpet for 20 students at Lakeshore Learning Materials. Thank you in advance for giving my students a clean and sanitary place to sit.
