Win a Classroom Carpet!


When I first started teaching, way back when my main duty at recess was to keep the dinosaurs away from the children, we did not have telephones in our rooms, forget computers, and I think we were pretty sure this "interweb thing" was just a phase.  However, we did have carpeted classrooms. And life was good. Squirmy children could stretch out on the floor without complaining of cold tushies, chairs slid noiselessly away from desks, and my feet didn't feel as if they were on fire at the end of the day.

But, those days are gone, my friends. And now area rugs have become a hot commodity in classrooms across the country. But they are expensive. And sometimes kind of ugly and boring. And almost always an issue with the beloved fire marshall. But KidCarpet.com is changing all of that. Picture your classroom carpet. Is it one solid color. Perhaps a jazzy world map? Maybe square blocks of colors you'd never choose to decorate your room with? Well, feast your eyes on these beauties! Gorgeous, am I right? And totally legit with the fire marshall for a lot less than you would pay with other school supply companies because KidCarpet is the actual manufacturer of these rugs and they ship them directly to you without a middle man.


The carpet I chose is called On the Spot Classroom Seating Rug. While I loved the beautiful and unique designs KidCarpet offered, I really wanted the practicality of the spots. Now when I gather my kids on the carpet for a mini-lesson or read aloud, we won't have any pushing or shoving or complaints of someone touching someone else. I kind of can't wait to use the spots as part of my "comfort bubble" personal space conversation next year! Look at this gorgeous blue color! This is the 7.5 x 12 ft. rug and has 24 spots. Plenty of room to face forward, or turn & talk. I had the little guy on the left sit a bit off his spot so you can see even if they don't plant their posterior perfectly in place (yay alliteration!) there's still plenty of room.

If it's time to stretch out and watch a completely relevant and educational video or perhaps read to self, we now have a lot more room than before. Old Greenie has lasted me quite a few years, but I'm not so sad to see it go. Especially with Big Blue ready to take its place.

So, ready to win one for your classroom? Just enter using the Rafflecopter widget below. You can enter three ways:
1. Like KidCarpet on Facebook.
2. Follow me on Pinterest (just click if you already are!)
3. Visit KidCarpet.com and then come back and leave a comment here to tell me which 7.5 x 12ft (or smaller) rug you would pick if you won. Good luck!

  26. I really like the idea of every student having their own spot and the "On the Spot Classroom Seating Rug Multi on Blue" would do just that. It could also be used for lining students up by color, or sending them to their seats on the carpet in an organized way.

We used to have these adhesive carpet squares, but the health inspector came and found mold growing underneath them (I know......YUCK) so the custodians had to rip them all up.

  180. I love the blue bubble rung. Many of the same reasons that you do. First, my classroom color theme is blue and green. Blue is such a soothing and relaxing color. I also talk about personal space. When I sit to read with the kids and they are right on top of my feet I tell them that they are in my bubble :) Then we talk about how each one of them has a personal bubble and not to let it get popped. Last, I love all of these rugs. We just had our floors tiled last year and the floor is way to hard to sit on in the reading center. Thank you for the chance!!
