Snug As A Bug On Our New Kindergarten Rug!

My students need 1 new rug. Our current rug is old, stained, & fraying. The rug is the center of my classroom and where the students spend a lot of their time.

My Students

When you walk into a kindergarten classroom, it should be bright, clean, and inviting. The current rug in my classroom is old, faded, & tattered. This is not the first impression I would like to make on students who are just starting school. Help make my classroom beautiful with a new rug!

I teach Kindergarten in the beautiful state of WV.

My school is in a small town where everyone knows their neighbors. My students are 5 to 6 years of age who are eager to learn and love hands-on activities. We are close to a large university and hospital which makes our school more diverse than most areas of WV. They love learning about the others students' cultures and religions.

My Project

I am requesting 1 classroom carpet. The carpet is the first thing you see when you open the door to my classroom. It isn't just a decoration or a floor covering; it is utilized for learning throughout the day. My current rug has the alphabet but I selected a rug this time that has the alphabet & numbers to 20. The students will sit on the rug during classroom instruction and I will also use it for alphabet & counting games.

The rug I have selected has a 10 year warranty & will enrich the lives of over 200 children.

Please help make the first impression a positive one by providing us with a new class rug!
