Luv Chicken Seats - Flexible Seating Option

Walking in to my classroom, you will find few children sitting in chairs and many children sitting in multiple other places - yoga balls, wobble stools, all over the floor, and more.  I LOVE flexible seating and feel like my kids really do their best when they pick the place that they can work best.

I just heard about Luv Chicken Booster Seats for kids and got one to try out in my classroom.  I have some photos & thoughts to share with you all! 

I even have a PROMO CODE that will get you $15 OFF a Luv Chicken Cushion!!!!

Luv Chicken cushions are fabulous for toddlers, on the go families, and classrooms.  See how I used this as a flexible seating option in my classroom.  Check out the PROMO CODE to see how you can save $15 off your Luv Chicken cushion!
So what is Luv Chicken?  "Luv Chicken Booster Cushions are fabulous booster seats for kids ages 2 - 7 years. The cushions are very stylish. They are created with colorful prints that are both fun and modern. Kids really love them! They are constructed of kid-safe (phthalate-free) coated cotton which makes them easy to wipe clean. They stay put with a grippy, non-slip bottom eliminating the need for clumsy buckles or ties. They also have a handle so kids can carry them anywhere - restaurants, theaters and grandma's house! They work great as floor cushions too!"

How did I like it?  I loved it.  I love anything that the kids can move with them and that they can clean up.  Here are some specific things I loved:
  • You can wipe them right up!  We are often eating in our classroom and kindergarten kiddos can be very messy - these can be wiped right off.  I am also thinking that would be fabulous for craft time!  The kids are able to wipe these off - anytime the kids can clean up is a plus for me!
  • The kids can carry them!  I stored my cushion in my library.  Kiddos know they can go over there and grab it if it is the option they would like to use.  It is lightweight and has an awesome handle - it makes carrying crayons and glue and books and everything else they shove in their hands SIMPLE!  A handle - so fabulous!'

  • Its a comfy cushion and provides a little boost.  Our floors have been through many learners - not necessarily where I would like to sit.  Sitting on a cushion, yes please.  This is also great for my smaller kiddos who need to be a little higher to write at the table or see the board.  I love that it really does provide a boost - the kiddos don't sink down!

Imagination Writing Station

This writing station has been a HUGE hit in my classroom.  Let me tell you a little bit about how I do writing in my classroom before I introduce you to this game changing product!

I do whole group writing and then I have writing during ELA in a center format (Daily 5 for those of you who are familiar with it!).  My writing station during our Daily 5 time is always a free writing center.  The kids can write about WHATEVER they want.  When we finish up a whole group unit, say "How To Writing", then I introduce basic writing papers where the kids can make their own How To stories.  After we have learned about informational writing, I introduce informational writing papers.  You can get my whole pack of "generic" writing papers here!  It includes blank pages, how-to, informational writing, letter writing, list writing, opinion writing, and more.  Just place it at your station and the kids can write away!

Writing papers for your writing station - these packet includes a variety of papers that I use in my kindergarten classroom - the kids write on these during daily 5 and the papers cover a variety of writing topics such as how to writing, letter writing, list writing, informational writing, opinion writing, and more!

So...the kids have choice to write whatever they want.  I believe that choice is powerful and the kids really write some great stories.

Well, my kids this year have taken off with writing.  I know a have a future author in my current class.  I wanted to provide them with fun topics to write about if they chose to do so - and wah-la!  I created my writing station packs!

I just recently put out the Imagination Writing Station for my kids!  Creative writing is not a kindergarten standard, but five year olds have amazing imaginations.  I knew they would still be practicing important skills while creating imaginative stories about far away places.  They blew me away with their writing!
