Well...I've learned that you get what you pay for. I have been dragging my heels when it comes to buying a good rug for my classroom. The good ones are soooo expensive! I actually bought two rugs early this school year. The first one was a large remnant, but it started to fray terribly on the edges so I got rid of it. Then I bought a bound rug from Walmart. It was nice ( for about 1 month), but then it started to wrinkle and bunch up. See my post about that rug: http://luvtoeduc8.blogspot.com/2011/04/carpet-time.html So I have broken down and ordered a real classroom rug this time. It is a factory second but the manufacturer assures me that I won't be able to tell. It was half the price of the original price. Here is a picture:
It is an alphabet rug but the letters are supposed to be hidden. I'll blog later and let you know how it works out!
