Community Carpet

My Students

I have twenty-two precious and energetic kindergarteners in my classroom this year. I work in a Title I school in a small town nestled in North Carolina. They are an exciting group with mixed interests, abilities and goals. Some of my students are learning to read, write, and count, while others are learning sounds or how to hold a pencil. The work we do in our classroom is building lifelong learners through relationships and a strong sense of community.

In our class, we are a family made stronger by our differences and shared experiences.

My Project

This carpet is vital to our classroom community. We meet as a group for our morning meeting, calendar time, for every whole group lesson, and when we take our shake breaks! It's difficult for my Kindergarteners to transition to the floor without a specific place to sit.

This carpet will provide my students a place to learn, grow, share, and show!

Along with giving my students a specific spot to sit, a carpet would tremendously help with participation and partner collaboration.

I want my students to feel welcome and comfortable throughout the day. I love this carpet and believe its design will meet the needs of my Kindergarteners!
