My students are active and inquisitive third grade students who work hard and are motivated to do well. We are an urban elementary school. More than half of our families are identified as low income and almost half of our students are second language learners.
We need more sit and move cushions as well as soft reading cushions!
The schedule is rigorous and the students need to move. I have a few in the classroom and they are like gold to the students. I want all of the children to have them so they can move and focus on their school work.
We also need soft places to read. Soft cushions allow students to sit on the floor all over the room.
Students love to learn! We are an inclusion classroom with special education students, students with autism, and students with ADHD. My students are energetic children who love to learn. We need cushions that will fit all of the sensory needs in the classroom.
We have some sit and move cushions in the classroom. They are wanted by all of the students. These cushions allow the students to move while sitting at their chair. They can move their cushions to any spot in the classroom and they love it. For so many students, movement is needed in order for them to focus. My students have a rigorous schedule and they need more opportunity for movement.
We have many different sensory needs in the classroom.
We need sit and move tactile and soft cushions to meet all of the needs. I don't want to choose which students get the help and have a great learning day, and which ones don't. I have seen these make such a difference in students learning. All who need them should have them!
