Snug As A Bug On A Rug

My students need a carpet for class meetings and story times.

I teach an inner city second grade filled with 23 energy filled seven year olds. These are not "sit a chair for six hours a day" kids. They sit in circles for class meetings when getting to know each other better and solving problems. They sit and gather on the floor while I inspire and motivate them with exciting interactive read alouds. We've tried chairs, bean bags and stools, however a carpet to sit on would be the most versatile. It would eliminate the need for moving furniture every time we gather as a group. Help us fight fanny fatigue. Most grown ups can't sit in a chair all day. Having a carpet to sit on will allow my students to focus on the other end of their bodies ... their brains.
