My students need an educational carpet to sit on when they are working on the tile floor, during hands-on learning opportunities.
Every morning we start off our day with Circle Time, which includes calendar skills, the 100th Day chart, our Morning Message, and my favorite, meeting our "Letter of the Week." Circle Time has unique dynamics. My job is to ensure that all children are learning in a safe, comfortable environment.
I have the honor to share in the learning of 30 inner-city, multicultural, kindergarten children.
For many, this is not only their first experience in a classroom, but their first time in an environment where no one is speaking a language that they understand! Scary for them, right? My students come from all over the world. An example of this is, yesterday, our school's lead ELL teacher assessed my class. She found that 19 children out of 30 qualified for services. Therefore, after a sleepless night of trying to figure out how can I best serve these children to feel safe and loved, it occurred to me that a carpet would provide the perfect platform for learning, classroom management, comfort, and a special place for ELL learning to take place.
Our classroom is bright and inviting, with a print-rich environment. The educational carpet would enable me to create an atmosphere of comfort and warmth, where experiential learning would take place. It would also be used as a classroom management tool. Because this carpet has at least 30 individual shapes, each child could have their own shape or color to sit on. It would be used as an area where the ELL teaching could work with students in a relaxed atmosphere.
I would like to thank you in advance for your generosity!
Because you have chosen to "pay it forward," your gift will enable me to create a home-like learning environment where great things can and will take place.Read More
