Feedback Please!.....Ideas for Classroom Circle Time Seating
+: Each child has a clear boundary of where they need to sit.
+: Provides the same use as expensive rugs purchased from classroom supply companies.
-: These carpets last about one school year before they are worn out.
No carpet at all
+: Students have the freedom to sit where they want to in the circle time area and there is no need to worry about keeping the carpet clean.
-: Students have no boundaries of where to sit during circle time. This works great for a class of students who are more mature and have great awareness of personal space. Not so much for a class of "younger" KG students.
......So what do I do this year? What have you used in your classroom? Help!
