No More Cold Floors!!!!

My students need a comfortable place to sit and also need to learn about American Symbols. The American Symbol rug is the answer for our class.

I teach 21 English Language Learning first grade students. The majority of my students are on free or reduced lunch and come from low income families.

Our classroom floor is tile which makes it uncomfortable to sit on for long periods of time. In first grade like to move from our seats to the floor quit often to stay engaged. The students enjoy being on the floor but complain during the winter time because it is cold.

I have found the perfect solution to two problems my students face. The majority of my students come from Mexico so they do not know much about American history, and they hate sitting on a cold floor. I have found a carpet of American symbols. This carpet would provide a comfortable set for my students and allow me to teach them about the symbols of America.

By funding this project you will be providing a comfortable place for my students to learn as well as providing a great learning tool to my students. Thank you for considering us.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
