Comfortable Flexible Seating

My students need these pillows and beanbags as flexible seating in the classroom to help them stay focused and engaged in their learning.

My Students

My kids are a very diverse group of children. Almost all of my students come from low income families and still come to school each day ready to learn.

As a first year teacher I want my classroom to be inviting and a place where students can come and be ready to learn and do their best thinking.

I am asking for these seating options to help my students thrive in their learning no matter what their cultural background or their family's income.

My Project

These flexible seating options will help support my student's learning by giving them the freedom to make some choices on their own by deciding where they can sit to do their best work. Just like adult when students are comfortable they are going to be more motivated to try their hardest on all of their class work.

The items I have chosen for my students will give them some more comfortable options rather than just the regular basic student desk.

The items are appropriately sized for 7 year old kids and are very inviting making kids want to sit there.
