We have a SMARTBoard in our classroom that we use everyday, all day. Unfortunately, our classroom does not have a carpet. Our "carpet" area is outlined by tape, so that the students know where to sit.
My students attend a public school that works very hard to provide for them.
My students are hard workers who love technology. One of those forms of technology we have in our room is the SMARTBoard. Having a carpet would make our time there easier, as well as provide a place to do other activities on the floor.
Sitting on the floor is always a fun way to learn. Students love to be out of their seats. Having a carpet would make not only our carpet time easier and more comfortable, (not to mention a bit warmer in the winter) it would make it easier to use the floor for centers and partner activities.
Having a carpet would make all the time we spend on the floor better.
The students would know their boundaries and be more comfortable. It would make our classroom feel more like home for a group of students whose home, often, is found inside the walls of their school.
