My Students

My students come from different backgrounds and countries. They speak Spanish and are learning to speak English. The majority are economically disadvantaged, and participate in the breakfast and lunch services provided by the school.

However, none of the previously mentioned circumstances limit their desire to learn and their drive to excel.

They keep working every day with the means they have, and that is what motivates me the most.

These children are in need of having an organized classroom. Classroom Rugs are a great help in organizing group activities but, they have other benefits as well: having a rug in our classroom is a great way to promote positive behavior and create a warm and friendly environment.

My Project

In early education classroom circle time is probably a routine part of the day in your class. Having a classroom rug helps define the space for carpet time and gives kids an easy to understand place to go when they are called on to go the circle. Many teachers ask “how do I get students to go to circle time?” I have seen it time and again that when there is a defined space for the carpet time kids quickly learn where to go and sit down more quickly and easily.

Assigned seating helps reduce issues between students and it helps each day run more smoothly.

Rugs with predefined squares can help maintain that order during circle time.

Rugs produce a comfortable place for reading time, our favorite time of the day.
