Comfy Reading & Flexible Seating

Help me give my students flexible seating. I need a cushion mattress for the frame in my classroom. The saucer chairs will replace my broken chairs.

My Students

My Junior High Students have my Heart! Junior High is such a tough age, and students are going through so many different challenges physically, emotionally, and mentally, and then to add distant learning to it all during these unknown times with CoVid. I teach a Reading Enrichment Class, and I help ELL students. I engage my students in a variety of ways through rotations, small group, whole group, and working individually. I work with another teacher to provide a safe and welcoming environment. We are in need of replacing our flexible seating. We do have students of various sizes which has caused most of our seats to break. I would like to be able to purchase different seating devices to accommodate all of our unique body types.

The purchase of flex seating would allow students an opportunity to sit comfortably in the reading classroom with a good book or an electronic device.

I like to provide a peaceful and comfortable environment for successful reading.

My Project

My students are very precious important people. Many of them are struggling with reading due to learning disabilities, lack of encouragement from home, or they have not found that perfect book yet. I am challenged to instill into them a love for reading. I have developed a classroom that is comfortable, safe, inviting, and a great place to read. If I can get them to love reading here, then that could transfer to a positive mind set towards reading in their futures. A comfy place to read can only help towards this goal!

I read aloud classroom novels during the year.

Picture this! Each 9 weeks, we start a new novel that I will read to the class. All of the students usually gather around me in MY comfy chair as I read aloud and discuss the novel with them. I would love for each child to have the option to sit in a comfy place as well! Again, this emphasis is to relate reading to an experience of a peaceful comfy getaway where they are allowed to freely use their imaginations and think of a different place or culture or era.
