Right on the Spot!

My students need a colored dot rug so they know exactly where they sit when they come to the carpet for instruction.

My Students

Do you remember how difficult it was trying to remember where your exact spot on the carpet was? With this rug, every single student will have their own personal spot and will know to sit in that exact spot each time.

My first graders are an enthusiastic and energetic group of kids.

We are a Title I school with a diverse ethnic culture. 100% of the students receive free lunch and 90% receive assistant. If we have this rug, they will be able to come to the carpet, sit on their colored spot, and be ready to learn in less time.

My Project

We have an interactive board at the front of the room. Students spend a lot of time sitting on the carpet for math and reading lessons. They waste a lot of time finding a place to sit at the carpet. With this colored dot carpet, this wasted time will be eliminated, thus providing more academic time.

First graders need to learn important reading and math skills.

Many of these skills are taught on the board on the carpet, in which they need to transition quickly to. This rug will help my students find their spot quickly so instructional time can be maximized rather then being wasted on finding a spot.
