Soaking dried foods

I have a question about soaking dried foods such as bean curd sticks and dried mushrooms...

When I put them in a bowl and add water, they float to the top. Should I weigh them down with something light so that they are submerged? Do I need to stir them? Or will they rehydrate properly just left to float?

(I'm asking because I'm soaking some dried mushrooms right now, and I'm using a cereal bowl to keep them submerged, but I'm wondering if it's neccessary)
