Take a Trip on a Magic Carpet Ride

Help me give my students a comfortable rug with individual spaces to sit and learn!

My Students

I'm surrounded each day by twenty three little ones who are very excited to be at school and love learning new things!

There is a sense of pride and ownership amongst them concerning their classroom.

Each day, we discuss our schedule and it brings such comfort to them to know we have created a classroom routine that is right for them.

The growth that I see in each of my students from week to week in kindergarten is phenomenal! I'm continually impressed by the progress they are making.

My Project

This rug would add comfort and clearly defined spacing to my student's daily routine:

Currently, half of the class cannot see the white board slide projector from their seats at their table spots.

Because I teach literacy using educational slides, students would be able to see and interact with each slide from their specific spot on the carpet without getting in anyone else's space. During our daily literacy block, students hear a story, discuss details about the story with both the teacher and a peer while pair-sharing.

On our new rug, we would have a morning meeting each day to learn about the calendar, weather and alphabet to become familiar with number and letter recognition. During math and literacy centers, we would utilize the rug for block and lego building and tangram designing. Lastly, we would celebrate reading during our Drop Everything and Read (DEAR) portion of the day by reading individual books on the rug.
