I would like to provide carpet squares or carpet samples to each student in my school. We have assemblies outside on the asphalt and sometimes it gets dirty as well as hot. The school chairs are sometimes too heavy for the little ones. Therefore, carpet square samples (individual carpet squares) would be ideal for children to sit on during these outside assemblies. I also use them inside my classroom during silent reading time. Children will be able to sit on the floor with a carpet and read quietly. I believe it would benefit all of the students at my school. Thank you.
