Happy almost 4th of July to everyone! Today I am linking up with Debbie from Crockett's Classroom for Thrifty Thursday!
Do you love those cute classroom rugs that you see in almost every classroom? I do! Unfortunately for me, they are hundreds of dollars! As a new teacher last year, I had so many supplies to purchase with my budget, that there was no money left over, and certainly not enough to buy a rug! So, I thought back to some of the classrooms I subbed in, and decided to go the duct tape route.
My wonderful kindergarten teammate Barb told me about these things called Sit Spots. And let me tell you, they changed my entire year!
The best thing about Sit Spots is that they VELCRO to the carpet! Why is that so exciting? Well for one, if you are OCD like me and are creating rows that are not exactly straight the first time, you can move the dots! Second, you can change your arrangement throughout the year to fit your needs. Third, the custodians do not hate you because they can easily be vacuumed over, and they don't come up!
If you're looking for a solution to your carpet problems and don't have or don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a rug, consider SitSpots!
Do you have another solution that works for you in your classroom? I'd love to hear about it below!
