Every morning, my students walk into our classroom with a thirst for knowledge, ready to learn! By the end of the school year, they are independent workers, critical thinkers, and fearless trailblazers ready to take on the challenges of the next grade!
My third-graders come from various communities.
They bring to school with them so much background knowledge already acquired through their own personal experiences. Coupled with their eagerness to learn more, my students desire to be pushed to the next level and to be held to high expectations.
Carpets produce a comfortable place for both teachers and young students to expand their learning space onto the floor. With the vast square footage of the “Place for Everyone Classroom Carpet,” students will be able to stretch out, partner up, and do their best thinking without the confines of traditional classroom seating.
Classroom rugs are essential tools not only for deigning a friendly environment, but for classroom management as well.
When gathering students up for Morning Meeting, read-alouds and math lessons, a carpet in the destination spot can serve as a great anchor. Partnering students up for turn-and-talks become a breeze! The “Place for Everyone Classroom Carpet” features big, bold, extra-roomy squares that give each child their very own space to sit and play! Plus, the color-coded rows make it incredibly easy to divide the class into small groups. Students won’t question where to sit, or spread out very far because the rug becomes the destination and the edges of the rug serve as the defined space.
