Help! I Have Rug for 20, Need One for 31 First Graders!

My students need a carpet to sit on when we do floor work. These individual square rugs really help first graders to stay in there space. We also need construction paper.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I have gone from having 20 students to 31. I have a carpet for 20, but now need one for 31. We do calender, read mini books, and do most of my teaching with the kids close by on the carpet. I really need another carpet and construction paper.

I teach at a K-6 grade elementary.

The school is located in an inner-city neighborhood. We are a title 1 school where all children receive free breakfast and lunch. 3/4 of the children are bilingual. Many of my students parents also attended the same school.

My Project

I am requesting a carpet on the floor for teaching and for management. The carpet has spaces for each child to sit in. We do so much on the floor so a carpet really helps. I also am requesting construction paper for the many art projects we do throughout the year to promote literacy.

Because I have one carpet for 20 students it will be difficult for the other 13 students sitting on the floor.

I can see arguments to way they don't get to sit on the colorful nice carpet.
