Multifunctional Classroom Centerpiece

My students need a classroom carpet.

My Students

How many of us would enjoy sitting on a hard tiled floor for the majority of the school day? My kindergarten students need this multifunctional rug. Not only will this be a great tool when learning the alphabet but it will provide a comfortable, bright and cheerful centerpiece to our classroom.

Many of the incoming kindergarten students will be coming to school for the very first time.

Each student brings something different to the table, and my school and we value that. I differentiate and enrich all subject areas and teach students at their highest instructional level. We learn through a lens that focuses on collaboration, creativity, communication, and critical thinking.

My Project

Having a rug would allow students to sit comfortably and work. We have tiled floor with no carpet in our classroom. Therefore, the floor can be uncomfortable to work on. If students are not comfortable, learning is inhibited or does not happen. My students need to feel comfortable so they can focus on learning.

I believe this seating rug would provide my students with a warm, inviting, structured space for them to learn with minimal distractions.

This carpet will give our classroom a well defined meeting spot to grow and learn each day.
