I teach boisterous kindergarteners who are learning many life skills in addition to academics such as listening and how to behave in a classroom setting. They are full of energy and are eager to learn, but since they are still in the beginning stages of learning these skills, they need constant reminding of procedures.
A classroom seating rug would help them in this learning process by giving them their own consistent space.
This would help in building their confidence and independence as they adjust to our class. Kindergarten is a year of tremendous growth and I love how excited they are to learn!
Kindergarten is the first full day classroom experience for most children. Helping them learn procedures and rules is critical to their development and my classroom management. A classroom seating rug would be a great help in managing my students during whole group floor time, read alouds, and other times they are not working at a desk.
Kindergarteners move from desks to the floor numerous times throughout the day.
A rug gives each child their own personal space to sit during lessons or stand during brain breaks. It also looks great in the classroom and aids in creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.
