My students need a soft welcoming carpet to sit during whole group instruction.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Would you want to sit on the hard dirty tile floor while you are doing a whole group activity with your teacher? My students have to because we don't have a carpet or an area rug in our classroom. The floor gets much dirtier during the winter months.
I teach second grade with 20 students.
The percent of students receiving free and reduced price lunch at my school is 77.4%. I teach five students that are English language learners, andtwo that are special education students. There are four languages being spoken in the classroom. Two students are in the custody of their grandparents because their parents are incarcerated due to illegal activities.
My students come from very diverse backgrounds but they all have something in common. They all want to learn. My students never ever complain about the hard dirty floor that they have to sit on when we do a whole activity or when they work at centers during independent activities. As a teacher, I want to provide my students some comfort that would enhance their learning even more. An area rug for them to sit on while they do their work would be a wonderful addition to our classroom.
We would incorporate the United States map area rug into our social studies curriculum.
We don't have a map or globe in our classroom and it's difficult to show the whole class where our state is located on a map. With this area rug, it will a great opportunity for the students to learn about the different states, and be comfortable too.
