Our Classroom Rug Will Build Our Classroom Community

My students need a classroom rug for read alouds, reading lessons, discussion about books and writing, and a space for book clubs.

My Students

"I love learning about ancient Rome!" one of my students shouted at the end of class. There's nothing better than hearing a student proclaim their enthusiasm for a new topic. I teach three 3rd grade reading and writing classes (approximately 50 students daily). My scholars come to school every day filled with energy, excitement, and a love of learning.

I work at a title I school in Massachusetts where more than half of our students qualify for free or reduced lunch.

Many of my students come from homes where English is their second language. A majority of my students do not have many books at home or have access to additional resources to further their learning.

My school has an extended year and day to provide students with additional instruction time and enrichment opportunities.

My Project

My 3rd grade scholars deserve a community space to discuss what they are reading and writing. My school does not have the budget to provide students in grade 3 with a classroom rug and I want to provide my students with a comfy and welcoming space to learn.

A classroom rug would foster community and a love of learning in our classroom.

This classroom rug would maximize learning time in my classroom because each student would have their individual space. It would also provide a gathering space for read alouds, reading and writing lessons, book clubs, centers, and independent reading time. Although a classroom rug may seem small, it can have a big impact by providing students with a sense of belonging, while also increasing student voice in classroom discussions.

My students would take even more pride in their classroom and their learning if they had a special place to come and discuss their learning.
