Help me give my students comfortable seating options and calming music for our daily reading time.
I teach in a multi-age Montessori classroom in a large public school district. My students are vibrant 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders, who are full of energy and curiosity. Many come from homes with challenging financial situations, and some come from homes with challenging emotional situations. All of my students, however, come to school ready to learn. In addition to academic lessons, we work on improving focus, caring for others, and caring for ourselves. I love watching them develop confidence in their abilities and being a part of their academic and personal journey.
Every morning, my class starts its day with calming music and reading time. All of my students enjoy this routine, and some rely on it for starting their day off on a positive note. In addition to providing time to practice reading, this routine allows my students to have a moment of calm that they can use to center themselves, quiet the mind and complete the mental transition from home life to school life.
My students like that they get to make the following choices at the start of every school day: what to read, what type of seating they use, and where they place their seating in the classroom.
Depending on how their day started at home or how things unfolded in the hallways once they got to school, their choice of reading material, seating choice or location they choose to read will vary.
I am asking for help in adding new seating & calming music for our morning reading time. This project includes 2 beach chairs to replace the well worn pair that we currently use. It also includes 3 durable and easy-to-clean bean bags that I know will be very popular with my students. Additionally, I am requesting a few CDs of calming music to freshen up our current selection. Thank you so much for your help!
