Let's make our classroom comfortable, exciting, and enjoyable. I teach Theatre Arts in to over 1000 children, split between two rural elementary schools. We use big, open spaces to create wonderful plays, write scenes, and learn to collaborate through theatre games and group work.
Both of my schools cater to a wide range of students, both socially and economically, Theatre Arts classes are designed to help those shy kids come out of their shell and be as creative as they can be.
It's extremely difficult to learn when you're uncomfortable. As a theatre arts teacher to over 1000 elementary students, we move around in class a lot, and desks and chairs just get in the way. So, students have to sit on the hard, cold, tile floor.
A nice, colorful, comfortable rug would make learning and listening so much more enjoyable.
Who can pay full attention to a teacher when they aren't at ease? That's why a simple, large, colorful rug would benefit my classrooms. I want to create an exciting, vibrant, creative, and colorful learning environment for all of my students.
