I Can Sit Where?

My students need these Giant Comfy Pillows to allow them to sit where it is best for them to complete their work and work with each other in a cooperative manner.

My Students

My Kindergarteners are wonderful! They live in a high poverty area of Portland Oregon and many don't have the things that they deserve at home.

They are all so kind, so respectful and deserve the best!

Each and everyone of my students deserve to have the best at school. I feel it is my job to provide that for them! They have the best personalities and work really well together. I want to continue their love and passion for learning. Please help me with my comfy pillows! Thank you.

My Project

These materials will allow my Kindergartners to experience flexible seating in a tremendously comfortable environment. We have a few items in our classroom to allow for them to make a choice as to where they sit. These pillows will allow even more choices and more chance for sharing and working together.

My students are wonderful kids who deserve the best.

I want to allow them to have nice Comfy pillows to help them focus and work in an environment that will suit their needs.

Five year olds need a place to stretch out and get comfortable so they can learn how to read and write well!
