Reading Corner Carpet

Help me give my students a carpet for our reading corner, so that they can quietly read together on the carpet. Currently, I have to limit the number of students in my reading corner.

My Project

I am trying to create a reading corner for my resource room students. My students' learning styles varies greatly. I have a multitude of learning disabilities within one classroom and if I had a quiet place for some of my students to go while I did one on one instruction it would be helpful. Unfortunately, I have been asking my district for several years and they seem to never have the budget to supply my classroom with a nice carpet. I currently have three bean bag chairs and I need to draw names in order to choose who will sit on the bean bag chairs. If I had the carpet I could let the kids sit on the carpet with some throw pillows. It would make a huge difference in my room if I finally got the carpet I so longed for my students to have.
