Hi, my new classroom is all tiled and I’m trying to find a round or oval rug that’s preferably over 3ft in diameter for a reading area. Does anyone have suggestions of where to find one?

If you are near a Staff Carpet store, they have a teacher event in August and give out free carpet remninance....they aren't cut perfect but I use one for my reading area and it was within my budget...free....lol

You could also look at thrift stores. You can get them at a great price and even if it's a little dirty, take it to the car wash and spray it off. That works wonders on second hand rugs!

Donors Choose has been helpful with that. Lakeshore Learning, IKEA, and Target are some places I have gotten them.

You could check Walmart. I know they sell rugs, so they may have them.

I got a pretty pink one with flowers online at Target. You just need to shop around. Good luck.😊

Check your school rules, some districts have fire-resistant requirements, etc. Otherwise keep an eye out for door carpet sales in the next months as kids go off to college

Hi there! I attended a virtual robotics workshop last week. I learned a lot and especially enjoyed connecting with others who were using robots in their classroom. I hope you join the discussion and we can find a way to support each other.

Can’t decide between Cornell’s Metro vs. Americas EMBA program. They both seem to be great and offer an Cornell MBA upon graduation. Americas costs about 155k while the Metro NY costs 205k. Both programs are 60 credits in different formats. I can’t seem to understand the difference in price. I like the Americas program because of its flexibility (can attend from selected cities across the US so I would not be stuck in NY). I like the Metro NY for the in-person classroom environment.
