Reading Without A Rug

The cost of an Alphabet Activity Carpet from Lakeshore Learning is $505, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I am a New York City public school Kindergarten teacher. This past school year there was a flood (due to heavy rain) in my room and the rug was ruined. The rug was part of my reading center in the classroom. I would like to replace the rug so I can create the cozy environment in the reading center that once existed. The students used the rug to sit on when I read them stories. Also when they were picking books from the library, they sat around on the rug and read. Since the rug was ruined, I had to rely on the mats that were part of the math center for the children to sit on and read or some of the students sat on the floor where the rug use to be. The cozy environment of our reading center no longer existed. The students were used to their "reading corner" and it was taken away by mother nature and a crack in the wall. The students enjoyed reading on the rug and being read to and it was unfortunate that it was taken away from them. When the new school year starts, I would love for my new students to enjoy the reading center in a nice and comfortable area. I would like to recreate a cozy reading environment for the incoming students. Since most are only 5 years old, and some are only 4 years old when they start, a nice colorful rug will be a beautiful welcome as they come into the class.
