My students need seat cushions to help them have a comfortable personal space for story time, calendar time and more!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
A typical day in our classroom is very busy. At the beginning of the year there is a lot of focus on how to get in a line, how to walk in a line, how to sit on the carpet "Criss-cross applesauce", how to raise your hand, and how to cover a cough, just to name a few.
My preschoolers are all 4 years old and will turn 5 sometime between December and June.
Some speak English, some are learning English. They are active, ready to learn, and very busy. Our school is fairly small and nestled in the neighborhood although the freeway is a stone's throw away.
The preschool children will be able to access the seat cushions for carpet time, to help them with personal space. They will also be able to use them during activity time if they would rather sit on a cushion than the floor or the carpet. They can even be used during the yearly earthquake drill!
It's hard to learn when another child is practically on top of you or playing with your hair.
Being able to move the cushion to a place where the child is no longer invading someones personal space will make it more concrete until the child can sense that spacing for themselves.
