Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach second grade students at a rural school. My students and I enjoy learning. We do several activities on the floor and my students are complaining about how cold the floor is on their bottoms. I do not feel that much learning is going on since they are complaining about being cold. Floor space and having the children being comfortable while on the floor is needed for learning to go on. Also, if I were to have them to do activities at their desks at all times, many of them would become bored. I know that floor activities hold the children's attention far greater than me standing in front of them all day and the students working at their desks all day. The rug would be used quite often throughout the school year for math, reading, science, and social studies. I have desired to have this type of rug in my classroom for a very long time, but our school instruction money was never enough for the purchase. The durability of this rug would benefit not only my students now, but future students as well. Thank you for your generosity and understanding.
