Getting kids to sit and attend on the rug is a real challenge. Sometimes giving more support is helpful. One favorite item at our school is the beach chair. Having back support works in some cases. As you can see in this photo, it is not always the answer, however. Without movement, this student is melting into the rug. Our solution was to add a small air cushion to the seat of the beach chair. It helped to change this youngster's alertness level, sitting posture and attention!

Have you seen to soft sports seats from Five Below? For just $5, you can get a soft seat with a back on it. The bonus piece is that the kids can rock in it a bit. They were available during the holiday season.

Thanks for the tip...are these similar to the camping or stadium seats? I haven't found a good cheap resource for these, so I hope Five Below has some left after the holiday!
