Fun on a Rug!

Help me give my students a learning environment that they can have fun in with math and phonics games! My students LOVE sitting on the carpet and FLEX comfy floor seats would be a perfect addition to our class!

My Students

I currently work in inner-city neighborhood school. I am a special education teacher who work with kids with a variety of disabilities. Since my student's learn on a different pace and in different ways they are in need of more resources than others. My goal as a teacher is to provide the best education possible to my students.

Every student can learn regardless of their disability and deserve the best education possible.

Just because a child has a disability does not mean they cannot learn. At times, they may need just need a little extra help! New resources would be a great way to give them the extra push they may need to be successful.

My Project

The students I currently work with tend to be one to two grade levels behind in reading and math. My special needs students have a difficult time understanding what they read because of their lack of phonics skills. Phonics games would provide a fun approach to learning how to blend sounds. Also, in 3rd and 5th grade it is critical for my students to know their multiplication facts to pass state exams. Having a fun block game to practice multiplication facts would engaging for my students.

Students need an area they feel comfortable in to be able to learn.

My students love to work and read in our flexible seating area on the rug, but even with a rug the floor is hard and can be uncomfortable. Comfy floor seats would mean the world to my students! They can learn in their favorite spot in the classroom and be comfortable!
