My Students

My first graders are always enthusiastic and energetic! They come to school each day eager to engage in new learning with their friends. Each year I have a very diverse group of students with ranging needs. Approximately 50% of my students are economically disadvantaged. For many, school is their safe place; their second home. Young students strive in structured environments where resources are developmentally appropriate and my classroom provides just that! With this project I am looking to enhance our whole group time and small group time with an organized place to sit!

My Project

We currently do not have a rug in our classroom, just simple laminate floors. This rug will suit multiple purposes. Not only will it provide a warm, cozy feeling, it will be used for many math activities and to help provide personal space for each student.

What's better than a life sized 120 chart?

In first grade, we work with numbers to 120. This rug will be perfect for whole group, small group, partner and independent activities. The ideas are endless!

This rug will also provide boundaries for students during whole group activities. Each student will have designated areas to sit based on the numbers. This will also be great for number recognition. I can strategically place students at certain numbers based on their need.
