STEM Carpet for Creating Structures!

My students need a transportation carpet to support engineering activities and STEM development in my classroom.

My Students

My students are in a Title I preschool and 100% of our students receive free lunch. Many of the students have a parent in the military. The children must meet at-risk criteria to attend this program. The criteria include family income, identified disabilities, parent employment, and English proficiency.

I provide a creative classroom environment with materials in the learning centers that are empowering students through art.

I also provide science, technology, engineering, and math activities. I believe this will prepare all my students to be successful in kindergarten and beyond.

My Project

My students love playing on the floor in the blocks center. It offers a soft alternative to playing on the hard floor. My current transportation rug is too small for the center. We need a larger carpet which has drawings and designs that encourage them to use STEM principles to build, create and play like little engineers on the floor.

Early education provides the fundamentals for critical thinkers and problem solvers and is a crucial time to integrate S.T.E.M.

activities. This carpet will also define the area the children can build on to reduce uncontrolled creating. The students will only build things on the carpet and away from the quiet centers.

The 8' x 12, Cruisin' Around the Town Carpet will give three to four students a chance to work as a small group to learn mathematics, engineering, discovery, and leadership. This carpet will allow my students the opportunity to learn other skills such as social skills, personal space, listening, and the ability to share ideas that will help them succeed in school and in life. The carpet will provide a colorful, comfortable, and safe environment for us all.
