Flexible and comfortable seating such as the requested bean bags allow students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent/buddy reading times, they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are reading at their desk, or sitting or lying on the floor with books and pillows. I had bean bags that have become flattened over time, and my hope is to replace them with better quality bean bags that would allow my students more options for comfortable silent reading or buddy reading time. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them to read. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged in their reading than when they are just sitting at their desk.
