My Students

I am a first grade teacher in a high-needs school district. I have twenty-five students who show up every day eager to learn something new and ready to share! One of my goals this year is to share my love of learning and teach students the skills and strategies that strong readers and writers use every day. We need a meeting place to gather as a community. We need a comfy carpet with enough space for everyone to listen and share. We will listen to each other's stories, enjoy laughing together as we read an incredible book, talk about those big "first grade" questions. Most of my students are English Language Learners and new to our community. With an inviting comfy carpet, I want each child to sit confidently and be the best learner they can be! I know that each child has an important story to share and I can't wait to sit together and listen. All are Welcome at our community carpet!

My Project

This beautiful new carpet will send a message that all are welcome at our community carpet. It will help my students to sit more comfortably and give them each a designated spot. This will allow us to get to the learning and instruction quicker, reducing transition time and distractions.

Personal space is important for students to recognize and with a designated spot, students will be more focused and more confident learners.

There is also a ton of vocabulary work I plan to incorporate as students are invited to their spots. For example, "row" and "column", colors, finding patterns, direction words.

This bright and inviting carpets feature big, bold, extra-roomy squares that give each child their very own space to sit and play! Plus, the color-coded rows make it incredibly easy to divide the class into small groups.
