Mrs. Rozier from Yonkers NY is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sit, Stay, and Read Awhile

Help me give my students a comfortable seating alternative to use during my read aloud, or their independent reading practice. These soft seats are great because students can get comfortable, and focus on listening, or reading.

My Students

My second grade students are usually excited to come to school every day. They are ready to learn whatever I have to share with them, as well as whatever they have questions about. They especially enjoy working together on STEM activities. We enjoy "googling" words and questions that they have. Many of them are not reading on grade level as yet. It is one of my goals each year to motivate each student to read by reading aloud to them. Once they can read, they can learn anything.

My students may start out apprehensive about reading, but after hearing me read to them with expression and intentional enthusiasm, they often find themselves excited to read more .

I try to impress them! I choose books with challenging vocabulary, and plots that make my students wonder, and want to know what will happen next. I make time on a daily basis to read to my students. I encourage them to sit comfortably, and listen closely. It is a special part of their second grade experience that I hope they will remember fondly.

My Project

Because of space constraints, I have to think outside of the box to help my students have options for where to work. I prefer that they don’t sit on the floor which is sometimes cold or dirty. I don't think rugs are ever clean enough. I think it's important for students to have a choice about where to sit sometimes.

Ideally with these soft seats, my students can find a spot, make themselves comfortable, and lose themselves in a book.

These soft seats are easily cleaned, and light enough for my little learners to carry. They can each take one soft seat to any spot they choose in our classroom.
