Teacher Hack #2

rugs that curl, corners lifting

I don't know about you but I love my $14.99 IKEA rug in my library.... but I have the dreaded case of extreme rug curl.  Does this happen to your rugs in your classroom??? My third graders are constantly tripping over it.... (Uh-oh... #teacherfail)

I have a huge chevron (white and navy) rug that I love as well... but I have taken the blue painters tape and taped it down to my carpet.  Have you ever done that??? The problem with that is it is ugly and the tape comes up as the kids walk on it.

So I decided I was going to fix this horrible rug curl.  Of course, I went right to Pinterest and found all these expensive options.  YouTube came to the rescue!!


I went to Home Depot and bought these peel and stick flooring tiles for .25 cents each and put them on each corner of the rug. 
Instantly no more rug curl for the low, low, low price of $1.08! If that is not a teacher hack... I do not know what is!

  6. Great idea! The tile doesn't make the rug slide more easily though?

    1. Rebecca! I have not had a problem with the rug sliding around. It just stabilizes the corners to keep them from lifting. My students were always tripping over the rugs in my classroom! Thanks for reading! Sarah

  16. Mentoring a new teacher is a tricky job and many mentors, sadly, are overworked! In many scenarios, they are expected to be available to new teachers as often as possible, even during difficult times such as assessments and teaching their own classes. https://www.hr.com/en/app/blog/2020/08/how-to-become-a-speech-language-pathologist_kdtwhfpu.html
