Take Us On a Magic Carpet Ride

My students need a large cushioned rug for our "family gathering" area. Our old carpet was torn and stained from years of preschool use and needed to be discarded it was in such bad shape.

My Students

The preschoolers in my classroom are serviced in a Title I school where many of the children I serve come from a low income families.

The children in our program have demonstrated some type of delay and a need for early intervention to prepare them for their kindergarten year.

My goal as a teacher is to provide an engaging environment where children have access to good literature, art, music, hands on science and math activities as well as, rewarding social experiences and friendship building.

My Project

For the past twelve years I have been in my preschool classroom and the children have had access to a classroom carpet that was there even before me... it was worn, torn and stained. Frankly it was was gross, full of germs and simply not very comfortable anymore.

The need for a new comfortable spot for our family gathering and social skills meetings was obvious.

This year I revamped my classroom adding soothing colors and textures and one of the elements of our classroom was to have a soft comforting space to meet with children to build classroom community, learn vital social skills, and problem solve issues that arise during our day. Being able to provide that space will make our environment more inviting and welcoming and would provide another ten to fifteen years of comfort to many more classrooms of future preschoolers.
