Oh, the Spaces that You Go!

My students need a rainbow rug to help them visualize self space during whole group instruction time.

This August our charter school embarked on its first year! We opened our doors to serve students from all kinds of backgrounds, especially those from economically challenged environments. Starting a charter school has been quite a challenging task because of the lack of materials. How has this impacted my classroom? Let me start by saying that my 25 kindergarten kids are very wiggly. It isn't unusual for them to migrate outside of their designated spot on the floor during group instruction time. Oh, the places they go!

Currently we are using carpet tape to mark our spots, but the tape usually comes off of the floor and ends up on someone's shoe or pants and sometimes hair. It also does not mark off the space into a square, so it is hard for the students to visualize their exact boundaries.

A great way to help my students stop wearing tape and wiggle less is by having a rainbow carpet. Each child will have his or her individual space that they can call home during whole group instruction! The lines on the carpet will help them see their boundaries and to keep their self space from their friends.

With your help, my kindergarten crew will be able to see and know their space. They will learn that hands and feet belong in their own special home square. They will have better focus, be more engaged in lessons, and gain life-long learning experiences! You will make it possible for my class to achieve these things and more!
