Snug As a Bug on a Rug!

My students need a new classroom carpet. They deserve an area where they can all gather together.

My Students

Do you remember gathering on a special rug for story time or sitting comfortably on a bright colorful rug as you listened to your teacher? Well, my first grade class is looking for that special rug to add to our class!

My class is a very diverse group of learners.

Many of them are FARMS (free and reduced meals) children and most are ESOL (second language learners). We have gone title 1 this past school year. Our PTA and school do not have the extra money to fund a larger rug. My students several years back reached out to carpet companies for a donation. We were very blessed to receive the rug we have but with each year the class sizes continue to get larger causing several of the children this year to sit on the cold tile floor. My students deserve a cozy place to gather all together and learn: read, share, work in stations, etc.

My Project

I have 18 busy first graders who come to school eager to learn everyday. Minutes are wasted every day as we gather in the front of the class as we all are trying to find the perfect place to sit on our itty bitty rug. The rug I have chosen has a place for every student! This rug will provide a more comfortable place for my students as well as make the learning experience during our group time more enjoyable. Our rug will be used several times throughout the day for activities, story telling, centers, and introducing new material. Having a larger rug will create a special meeting place that promises every student their own personal space that allows them to see the teacher and listen and learn throughout the day.

I believe this rug will help my students increase their learning when we are on the floor and focus on the material being taught.

Please consider making a donation and help us add a colorful rug to our bright and inspirational classroom.
