New Teacher in Need of a Whole Group Rug! Please Help!

My Students

Remember when your teacher called you to the rug to hear a story? Do you remember intently listening as the story unfolded? I do and I used to love storytime! I want to give back to the students in my class. Storytime is a special time and I would love to have a rug for my students to sit on.

I am a brand new teacher!

I am SO EXCITED to begin my journey as a teacher. I graduated in May 2014 and was blessed enough to receive a kindergarten position at a wonderful country school. As with all new teachers, we often start from scratch, and a rug is one of the biggest expenses. Unfortunately, the room I am placed in does not have a rug for the students to sit on during whole group and storytime. I would greatly appreciate any donation towards a rug for my kindergarten students.

My Project

I am requesting a whole group rug (9 x 12) to sit on while we learn. The students in my kindergarten class will use the rug several times everyday. They will use it for storytime, a sitting area when exploring manipulatives, and it will also be used during whole group for math and reading instruction. Without a rug, my students will either have to stay at their desk or sit on a cold, hard floor. Please help me obtain a rug so I can create an environment that is comfortable for the kids. Thank you!

This project will make a difference in my classroom because it allows the students to get up and out of their seats while still continuing to learn.

The rug also allows for a more kid friendly environment that will making learning more fun.
