Cozy Carpet Time!

My students need a space to call their own during carpet time that will not only benefit my current students, but my future students as well.

My Students

I absolutely love my job and I have the privilege of working in a Title I school that qualifies for 100% of our kids to have free breakfast and lunch. I have the opportunity to teach 18 amazing students, 11 of whom are English Language Learners. They come to school everyday excited and ready to learn. They are all at a variety of language skills, but that doesn't stop them from wanting to learn!

My students enjoy conversations and I try to incorporate many opportunities for student talk to help them build their language and vocabulary skills.

They get excited when they learn something new and I can't wait to see how much progress they make this year!

My Project

My students spend a lot of time in whole group activities, partner work, and group work. I offer my students with many opportunities to dialogue with each other. For my English Language Learners, this is so vital in developing their language skills. We do many of these activities at the carpet. Some include "Question of the Day" and "Math Number Talks."

My students would love a comfy area, where they could have their very own spot to engage in rich conversations that build their vocabulary.

Having an area rug would make our carpet time more enjoyable and create a space that students call their own with their individual spots. It would be a place where partners and groups can work together comfortably.
