My Students

I work in an Early Childhood Special Education classroom. Sixty percent of my students have some sort of special needs, and the other forty percent are model students. They range in age from three to five years old.

My classroom is the first school experience that many of my students will have.

Everything is new and exciting. Every day we enjoy spending time building with blocks, creating artistic masterpieces, engaging in dramatic play, and reading stories. My goal is to make our classroom a magical place that the students love to come to.

My Project

Sitting together reading stories, stacking blocks with a friend, and relaxing after playing hard at recess. These are all things that happen on a daily basis on our classroom carpet.

When my students gather on the carpet, they are ready to learn and play with one another.

My current classroom rug has been so well loved over the years, that it is starting to show quite a bit of wear and tear. The edges are frayed and the colors are faded. I love that this carpet has calming peaceful colors that will be inviting for the students. It is also has a simple design that will not be overly distracting.
