Magic Carpet

My students need a carpet in the classroom that provides a space for everyone!

My Students

Remember when your teacher said to sit on the carpet, and you wanted to sit right up front next to her? And the whole class ran to the carpet, pushing and shoving? That is what happens everyday when I tell my class to sit on the rug.

My classroom is filled with 20 wide-eyed, energetic, students who are ready to learn.

Their brains are like little sponges that absorb everything. They come from families that are struggling in this horrible economy. I try not to let their home struggles affect the daily learning that happens in the classroom.

My Project

Young students have a hard time staying in one place for a long period of time. This is why teachers often have students move from one place in the room to another. Although this can become very time consuming, it gives students a chance to move. If students move five times a day and it takes 3 minutes of instruction time wasted a day, that equals an hour and 15 minutes a week! If my students had a rug with designated spots for each student, it would significantly cut down on wasted time.

Please help my class maximize our time.

If we had an extra hour a week, Oh, the things we could learn! We could spend an hour on science, social studies, or even art! Please help us get this magic "time-giving" carpet into our classroom.
