Taking a Magic Carpet Ride Through Learning

My students need comfy carpet squares to use as a flexible seating option in our first grade classroom.

My Students

We love to learn! These students can't wait to see what school and the world has in store for them and are so enthusiastic about learning! They are highly active and very energetic. They love to be hands-on and communicate with one another.

Our classroom is filled with 24 bright, beautiful, and blooming first graders who have a thirst for learning as much as they can each and every day.

Our classroom is located in Western Pennsylvania.

In our room, it feels comfortable, looks bright, and has constant movement, just the way we like it! It is an environment that welcomes all children and they love being here! I love it, too!

My Project

The first graders in our classroom are constantly on the move and enjoy working on the ground. They will also be called to our "Readers' Reef" where they listen to stories or get reading instruction and they sit on the floor. It is important that they are comfortable to get the most out of our lessons and/or reading material.

Carpet squares are both comfortable for the students and clean!

When students are comfortable, it will have a huge, positive impact on their learning and keeping them engaged. By having carpet squares, it will be cleaner than a large classroom carpet because they will not need to walk on the squares. They will simply pick them up and move them to where they will be seated.

I can't wait to add this flexible seating option to my classroom!
