My students attend a suburban school right outside of Columbia, SC. We have a very diverse population. These students represent all different races, genders, and income populations. As a member of this community, I live among them, and am so proud to be a member of this community.
Theatre will be offered to my students for the first time in a while this upcoming school year.
Theatre is an inclusive fine arts that welcomes all students. I will be teaching a class of sixth grade, two classes of mixed seventh and eighth grade, and a modified class specifically for special needs students. Did I mention that our school hasn't had a theatre classroom in several years? Allowing students to have a freedom of expression with their bodies and voices will strengthen their independence and creative skills both in and out of the classroom.
Having a colorful rug on the floor will encourage my students to get comfortable while they learn. A theatre classroom needs to be flexible and a rug will allow them to be comfortable while sitting on the floor.
We are requesting a carpet because my theatre classroom won't have desks so the students will either be sitting in acquired chairs or on the floor. Having this large blue circular carpet in my classroom will allow my students to be comfortable while they learn. (Rather than sitting on a cold tile floor!)
With the addition of this large circular carpet, tons of diverse learning will occur in my theatre classroom and my students will be comfortable while they learn!
Sitting, sprawling, posing or perching, all of these positions will be made more comfortable with the addition of a classroom carpet!
