Making classroom environments work and kid-friendly is imperative. It allows the day to progress more smoothly, as kids have a better grasp on where they should be at what particular times and what is expected of them. One great way to make class environments that aid kids is to implement classroom rugs. By clearly and attractively delineating a “circle” space, be it for story-time, or some other specified learning activity, kids know immediately where to go, which promotes a sense of satisfied independence and makes organization easier and less stressful for kids and teachers alike. Besides their inherent function as a way to delineate space, such rugs are attractive and warm. They reduce noise and make it less likely that kids will get injured. Another unexpected plus in having carpets in a potentially germ-ridden environment is rug’s ability to trap allergens where they can be whisked away by the vacuum, thereby reducing air pollutants.
- Classroom rugs have many important school environment functions, one specific one being that they help delineate special parts of the room dedicated to school activities.
- Besides creating a cozy environment, which can warm a sterile environment, rugs promote an injury-free space.
- Rugs also trap germs, which would otherwise linger in the air and they are great at reducing noise.
