Soft Seats for Little Learners!

My students need 30 Soft Seat cushions to sit upon in our meeting area.

My Students

In my kindergarten class, the children sit on the floor, in the meeting area, for direct instruction, ever day, several times a day!

I am a kindergarten teacher in an inner city elementary school.

For most of the teaching time, the children sit on the floor for direct instruction. This allows the children to be close to the teacher, as well as; learn social skills. The children love sitting on the floor to learn. It enhances the learning experience and closes the gap among the teacher and the students. It allows us to feel like a class, a special group of learners.

My Project

Sometimes, the floor may be too cold for the children to sit on. If the children had their own seats to sit on, they would be able to sit on the floor in the cold months, I would like the individual soft seats so that the children also learn how to be responsible for their own seat and be able to learn in a comfortable way. I am sure that the children would love having their own little learning seat for the meeting area.

If the children were able to have these seats, they would be so happy.

Just think of all the smiles that the children will have on their faces being able to sit on a nice, soft cushion instead of a hard floor to learn on. Don't you like being comfortable when you are reading or writing? Let's make this happen for my kindergarten class! Let's make learning fun and comfortable!
