Comfy Seats for Learning

Help me give my students a rug to relax on while learning and exploring!

My Students

My students are an amazing group of little individuals. They are a diverse group of individuals coming from unique backgrounds. More than 75% of my students come from low-income households. Some are just learning the English language and could use an extra push to send them in the right direction. We do a lot of work and learning on the floor. While they are ok with sitting on a cold, hard floor, a nice rug would make them so happy!

My Project

We all work better when we are comfortable in the environment we are working in. My kids do a lot of group work out of their seats. They are allowed to find a place that is comfortable to make their learning more enjoyable and a lot of them choose to sit on the floor. Some kids also learn better when sitting in a different location than a desk all day or prefer to sit closer to the Activboard, so they can see what we are doing in the classroom, because of poor vision. This rug will give them a comfortable place to sit as they learn and explore. They will also have a comfortable place as they enjoy the numerous read-alouds done in the classroom! After all, students learn by what is modeled. What better way to get them on the right track than to provide them with a comfy place to rest their bottoms!
