Comfy Seats? What a Treat!

My students need comfortable seats for small group instruction. The lounge cushions would be used for flexible seating.

My Students

My students are special because they're fighters. They come to school despite the many challenges they face. These challenges are present in their community and in their homes. Hunger, violence, absent parents, deportation issues, no transportation, lack of English, none of these issues keep my students from school. They are special because they work together, they watch out for each other and they love with all their hearts. They truly inspire me every single day. Each and everyone of them offers intellect, generosity, kindness, and hope for a bright future.

My Project

I started last year as a 3rd grade teacher with 24 students. I've looped, which means I keep the same 24 plus some more for a total of 33 students. I found some abandoned desks and chairs and barely had enough for everyone. However, during small group instruction where I target student needs, they have to drag their chairs to the back table because there are no longer extra seats for them. We've tried working on the floor, but that doesn't always work well. The shuffling takes some time and I always worry someone will get poked or hit by a chair leg.

I hope that with these new materials, my students will be able to sit comfortably and be engaged in their learning.

The floor pillows I'd like to use for flexible seating. When students are working and focused they have the option to sit where they would like and where they learn best.
