Superhero's Need A Place To Be Super!

My students need a rug from Lakeshore Learning that allows every child to have a place to sit, participate in pyscho-motor on the carpet, and most importantly a space to learn!

I am a new first grade teacher that absolutely loves teaching. We are having a wonderful year, but we sure have been having trouble as far as space goes. Our class theme is superheros in which we learn all about different behaviors and character traits that superheroes have throughout the year. We do a lot of learning on the carpet and tons and tons of psycho-motor activities on the carpet. Our only problem is we don't have a carpet! We have been sitting on the school's floor and not only is it not very sanitary, but us superheroes don't have a lot of space, let alone our own space to learn, move about when we do psycho-motor, music, etc etc. We sure would love to have a rug from Lakeshore learning that has colors and divides the space for the superheroes to learn and move! We would greatly appreciate more than anything this rug to be able to fully utilize our superhero learning potential would just absolutely love it

Our obstacle is not having a space to sit, move, learn, and be able to dance, do psycho-motor, sing, and sit on the carpet to learn like first grade superheroes!

We would love the Everyone has a space rug from Lakeshore learning to solve our problem and for all of us to have enough room to learn!

Your help will make it possible for kids at a Title 1 school that don't have a lot of money and space at home to have their own unique square to learn, dance, sing, play, and move about during psycho-motor in the classroom!
