Okay, so I am going to intern as a 5th grade teacher next year. I am so excited to get started, but still a bit clueless. Today at the store I found a bunch of great kids' rugs for only 18.99 that had either a map of the world, the US or the solar system. I am very tempted to buy one, but I am wondering...Are 5th graders too old/think they are too cool for a rug in the classroom? I would use it for the kids to sit on/around for morning meetings, and put bean bags or something around/on it for a special reading area.
