How It
All Started

When I created my first paper mat for my Kindergarten students, I never thought it would turn in to an actual company. I was just trying to figure out a way to teach Kindergarteners kindness, empathy, and lessen the tattlying that was going on in my classroom. After gluing and taping my large paper mat together (not realizing it would be my protoype), I had the kids try it out. We all came up with some problems that we were having in our class and acted it out using the Problem Solving Mat. Immediately, my students wanted to use it with their peers and were taking it very serious. I recognized the power the mat gave my students. Not only did it do what I intended it to but it also allows students to be heard, independent, thinkers, collaborators, listeners and solvers.
