    I really want to get a large, attractive rug for my whole group area. Of course, I am seriously interested in the Lakeshore Carpet that everyone seems to have- http://www.lakeshorelearning.com/seo/ca|searchResults~~p|2534374302091502~~.jsp

    Now, this rug is $300 to $400. I've seen this rug in many classroom pics online. Are all these teacher's paying out of pocket for it? We only get $350 to use on materials- period. Now, I've spent thousands of dollars on my classroom (and this will only be my 2nd year)-- so I have no problem with putting money out. I'm wondering if it's crazy for me to just suck it up and buy it. Give me your opinions- please!

    I know that I could easily buy a regular rug... but the prices are still high, and often the rugs are not flame retardant.

    What should I do?

    They have cute rugs. Browse the bonus catalog. You can also order one. They also have a hop scotch one that is available only on the web.
