The Learning Carpet

Sunday, February 3, 2013

We are very fortunate to have a new math carpet entitled "The Learning Carpet" in our math problem-solving area. Here is how our students used it upon its arrival to our classroom. Everything photographed below was accomplished without teacher guidance, as we felt it would be wise to allow them to explore first.






If you use "The Learning Carpet" in your classroom, could you leave us a comment with some advice or suggestions?  We would love to hear all the creative ways that you are using it!

  1. I'm so happy to see you got a carpet!

    I just brought one upstairs to use with my grade 5's to discuss the ideas of symmetry and diagonals when learning about 2D geometry. The lesson was a huge success.

    I look forward to hearing what learning unfolds.

    1. Hi Britney,

      Thank you so much for reading our blog posts!

      I'm so happy to have a learning carpet in our classroom like the ones I had seen at Havergal.

      I like the idea of using it for symmetry.

      Hope to see you soon,

      Joanne

  2. Ours has been used to measure each other! We are going to transfer this skill into making a graph on the carpet to show how many students are 6, 7 and 8 squares tall!
