Help me give my students bean bag chairs so that they can sit around the room when doing class work.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach 28 wonderful 4th graders in northern Virginia. These nine and ten-year-olds are a great bunch of curious learners who are enthusiastic about school and are kind to one another. They are encouraged to make choices about their own learning, and along with that comes choices about where to sit.
They love to sit around the room when doing class work.
They appreciate chances to get up out of their desks and move about the room, working in a way that best suits their needs.
Having comfy bean bag chairs will give my students seating options when doing classwork or curling up to a good book. Our classroom is on the small side, and students are seated in groups so that they can collaborate with their table mates. Often, though, they need to be grouped with other students - perhaps for a project they are working on or a readers' theatre play they are rehearsing.
My students are engaged and excited when given choices about where to work in the classroom.
Whether they are reading during silent reading time, or working on an assignment, they love to move about and have choice in their seating arrangements.
