With a Rug, We Can Connect and Learn!

My students need a large classroom rug that we can gather on and around for daily instruction and choice time.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

This will be my first year teaching at my current school with 2nd graders. These students live in a low income area, so it's the little things that go on in the classroom that they really enjoy. I hope I can make a change in their lives this year. Since I do not know these students yet (the first day of school is in late August) I would love to start with a nice area for them all to gather around to connect with one another from day one.

I would love to see my kiddos flourish with excitement to learn this upcoming year!

They would be so appreciative of all of the help, I just know it!

My Project

This classroom rug will provide a space to share and connect with one another, and at the same time, it will provide a space to learn and gain knowledge. My students come from a low income neighborhood and every little thing that goes on in the classroom doesn't go unnoticed. If we had a classroom rug to gather on and around, the students would feel like they have a space and a purpose in my classroom.

I want to make the students feel comfortable and welcome in this environment.

I know that I can achieve this through obtaining a rug for them to sit on and around. We will use this rug for many different things such as: choice time (they may sit here to read quietly each day), direct instruction (I love having all of the students in one area so they feel part of a group), and brain breaks (this rug will go in front of the smartboard in our room, so if we need to shake out the wiggles, we have a spot to do so).

This project will help my kiddos feel like they have a space to not only share things about themselves, but to connect with other students and learn new content. This project will provide so much for these kiddos, much more than a rug, it will provide a sense of belonging and community.
