Roll Out The Multi-Colored Carpet

My students need a new organizational carpet.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hello, I am a third year Kindergarten teacher in California at a program improvement school in a high-need community.

Being a new teacher to my school, I have inherited an old, heavily used rug. For Kindergarten, a rug is used as a congregation area to support learning. The current carpet that I have is stained and only has masking tape "X"s to indicate where the students should sit.

As such I would love to replace the old rug with a new rug. The rug that would be perfect for my classroom is a Lakeshore rug that has vibrant colors with a squared pattern. The squared pattern is ideal for my classroom as it will provide each student with their own space. This will help with classroom management and will allow a better learning environment.

Your generous donation will help create a well managed learning experience as well as cheerful and colorful environment.
