Mrs. Morales from Sorrento FL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Curriculum Covered in Comfort

My students need a couch to sit on while reading and working. This will give them a comfortable alternative to the hard plastic chairs.

My Students

I love watching my students get excited over the option of choosing a seat in the classroom. Many run to grab pillows, clip boards, or a bean bag.

I would love to bring another seating option into the classroom.

Most days, my students spend more time at school than they do at home, so I would love to make it look and feel like their "home away from home."

Everyone loves to be be comfortable and what's better than sitting on a comfy couch while learning? :)

My Project

First graders are ansty and they love to wiggle. Many do not want to sit in a hard, plastic chair all day.

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them.

During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. My students are choose to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. The green comfy couch will give them another choice. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they seated at their desk.
