Creating Circle Time Magic after Hurricane Harvey

My students need a new circle time carpet that will give them a comfortable place to sit while learning.

My Students

In a classroom full of three-year-olds, there is never a dull moment! My students are full of joy & energy. My classroom is in a Title 1 school, and all of the students in my class are labeled as Special Education students. As three-year-olds, this is the first time in school and away from their parents for most of my students.

As this is the first school experience for all of my students, I strive to make my classroom a place where they experience success, feel included, and have FUN!

This year the students in my classroom where greatly affected by Hurricane Harvey. Many lost their homes and were displaced, creating a great deal of stress in their lives. Many of the items that my students use each day in the classroom were damaged as a result of the storm. Despite these challenges, my students come to school each day eager to learn and grow.

My Project

Circle time is one of the most important times of the day in a preschool classroom. This is where my students learn to listen, take turns, share, and participate actively. We learn colors and letters, shapes and numbers, the days of the week, and so much more!

Unfortunately, our circle time carpet was damaged during Hurricane Harvey.

The new carpet I have requested will give my students and clean, colorful place to sit while they experience the magic of circle time. They will practice letter recognition as they find their seat, and learn boundaries and personal space while remaining in their square. This carpet will allow my students to grow as little learners and enhance their confidence in their ability to be successful students! Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
