We Need a Comfy Spot!

My students need this carpet because we do morning meetings and literacy time on the carpet.

My Students

I have made a grade level change from 4th grade to 1st grade to 2nd grade. I was so excited to have an opportunity to teach younger students. I have realized that I am in need of different supplies for my classroom.

In my classroom, my students like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention.

Some of my students face challenges each day that prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical."

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

In our classroom, we spend time on the carpet everyday. We participate in morning meeting in which we sit on the carpet and discuss our day. The students love this time each morning. This carpet allows each student to have his/her space for sharing and enjoying a moment together before our day starts.

We participate in literacy activities on the carpet and math activities on the carpet.

Students take materials to the carpet and work with partners during this time.

This carpet has square sections so that students can physically see boundaries and where to sit. It is important that we have a comfortable place to sit that we all fit on.
