Firm Footing for our Spanish Skills!

My students need a new carpet that will allow us to have a place to sit and learn that will make our learning more productive by reinforcing vocab in a visual way.

My Students

Right now in our class we have boring brown and gray carpets and my kids deserve a carpet that makes their learning more colorful and more effective by displaying important vocabulary concepts and giving each student a specific place to sit on the carpet, making them more focused on their learning.

My students are a fun bunch of little rascals who have the privilege of starting their language learning at a young age.

Beyond an amazing capacity to learn new languages quickly, they bring their energy and open minds to our class every day and they deserve the best education they can get!

My Project

This carpet displays both numbers and colors in Spanish in large, colorful ways and provides obvious places for each student to have an assigned seat which will increase accountability for students staying in their seats as well giving them ownership over their own spot on the carpet, all of which will lead to a more productive classroom.

My students have a unique opportunity to have a firm foundation for their Spanish language learning and I think this will be an important step in getting them all the resources that students in all communities deserve to have.
