Lit Lounge Classroom Seating

My students need flexible seating for my classroom reading lounge. The color of the bean bags coordinates well with our school colors and my classroom theme

My Students

My students are brand new middle schoolers.

I want my sixth graders to love, enjoy, devour and relish books in a beautifully relaxing and safe reading space.

My challenge is to compete with popular video games that my sixth graders are so addicted to. I want my students to see books as a viable alternative to flashy games by creating a colorful and appealing reading lounge filled with high interest books and comfortable flexible seating options. Books are friends.

My Project

I selected six medium sized bean bags seating for my Lit Lounge. The colors are yellow and blue. My classroom only has desk seating, and I think my students would really appreciate a more comfortable alternate while reading their favorite books. My students have suggested this idea to me personally.

Lounge seating will provide my students with a more comfortable alternative to traditional desks while leisurely reading their self selected books in my classroom.

I want the reading experience to be a pleasant one, much like video gaming for my students. Flexible seating options will help tremendously. Thank you in advance.
