My Students

The students at our school are all 3 or 4 years old. We have 671 students in all. That's A LOT of little kids! Our school is unique because it's only one of two Early Education Schools in our district and the only Early Education School to offer Art as one of its classes.

Our kids are sweet, kind, and excited.

The kids are eager to get their little hands on materials that unfortunately, for the most part, have not been available to them before.

My Project

In my Art class I see 671 students in 4 days.

That means that I have classes of 4 year olds that have 44 students each and classes of 3 year olds that have 30 students each.

That's a lot of little bodies on the floor. We always start our class with a meeting on the floor but it's hard for them to know where to sit without a rug with colored squares on it.A Place for Everyone Classroom Carpet for 30 will help them know where to sit and will give them some comfort.

Most early childhood classes have these types of rugs but the Art program at our school is new, and they didn't think I needed a rug like the rest of the classes, but I do! We are learning about personal space but it is very helpful to see it. We would be so grateful and appreciative for a rug with colored squares.
