My Students

This is my first year of teaching. This will be my first classroom and group of students! I am beyond excited about teaching kindergarten. Becoming a kindergarten teacher has always been a dream of mine

I will be teaching at a public school in Alabama.

Please help me create a caring classroom community! This colorful and organized carpet area will help me build a community and make carpet learning time more effective. I am very eager and looking forward to meeting my students! I know this is going to be a great and fun year.

My Project

Since this is my first year of teaching, I need an area where all the students and I can sit together. This colorful classroom carpet will give us an area to have whole group lessons, morning calendar, and many more activities. This carpet will provide comfortable, cozy, and warm seating for the students. This carpet has clearly delineated seating areas, which will help my students know where to sit so that they can focus best on the lessons and activities.This carpet is very colorful so it will make the classroom more welcoming and vibrant. There are many more ways this carpet can be used for and it will be very beneficial to my students and I. Thank you all so much!

The donations to this project will help obtain this colorful rug for my classroom!
