Help me give my students a defined space during their rug time! Some students needs boundaries for their safety and for the safety of others. These materials should help them stay put for circle time!

I provide speech and language therapy for three to five year old children in an early childhood education center. My students often have risk factors and most are in a special education setting. I work with students that have developmental delays, selective mutism, Autism and speech and language delays.
My students work on functional communication, vocabulary, social skills, basic concepts, listening and following directions and speech sound production to improve communication skills in the classroom and home environments.
The goal is to better prepare my students for Kindergarten.
Typically, I bring students into my office for speech/language therapy, but because my students in Blue 5 are so special to me, I go in there and teach a language lesson! These students need that extra push to understand that my speech and language teachings apply in both my office AND in their classroom!
My friends in Blue 5 need a defined space to keep their hands and body to themselves so that we all remain safe and calm.
Currently, the students sit on a plain rug, on a desk chair, or in someone's lap because they have not been able to control their actions. Let's help them understand where to sit by giving them a chair or colored marker!
Little ones need to focus on my material! It's fun - I promise! But these little ones struggle to understand their personal space and the space of others. They need boundaries which could easily be provided by these chairs or rug markers. Please help me find success in this wonderful classroom!
