My students need a reading rug with specific places for them to sit. They will each have their own dot, which will help them know where to go for quick transitions, without confusion or argument.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
The students at our school are truly the best! As a Title I school we are working to get students to master their grade level standards on a budget. Our school recently went from a two-star school to a four-star school, which means big budget cuts!
Working in a Title I school means working with 100% of students living well below the poverty line.
All students receive free school breakfast and lunch. My students have a lot of energy and an active learning style.
What makes my students special is their eagerness and desire to learn. I would describe the staff and students at My school as a family outside a family. We all collaborate to make our students' education the best it can possibly be by going above and beyond so that they can be successful and ready for 3rd grade!
As a class my students often move around the classroom to keep engaged and energized while learning. Rug rows have been a problem. Students don't have a specific dot to sit on which leads to confusion or arguing, which can take away minutes each day from learning time. Those lost minutes can add up to hours over the course of a school year. With this new assigned seating rug, they will know exactly where their assigned seat is next to their rug row partner so that transition time to different activities will be a breeze. The bright colors will also enhance the positive ambiance that I have going in my classroom!
