Pretty Please with a Rug on Top!

My students need an A to Z Animals Alphabet Carpet.

My 26 little kindergarten angels need a colorful carpet with designated spots to rest their busy bodies. This is my fourth year teaching Kindergarten and my classroom has grown each year. The children enjoy calendar, phonics and reading and would love to have a carpet with designated spots to sit on. We use our carpet several times during our day. We would be thrilled to have something bright and cheery to match our very special personalities.

This is my fourth year teaching kindergarten with this busy, worn-out, hand-me-down rug. My 5 year olds have a difficult time finding their spot to sit because it is just too confusing.

My students would love the adorable A to Z Animals Alphabet Carpet. It provides spaces for each child to sit, reinforces letter sounds, and goes with our zoo theme we have during the school year. And, of course, it is bright and cheery which matches my students attitude and behavior.

If we were fortunate enough to receive this new rug, I know the children would jump for joy! They would love to have a new, beautiful carpet with their very own letter to sit on. Our class would promise to take extra special care of it, so it can last and last!
