My Students

I teach 3rd grade in Hopewell Junction. My third graders are a wonderful bunch of kids. My students this year LOVE to read. I use various methods of teaching, for reading, we do reader’s workshop which allows for my students to engage in independent reading while I confer with students individually to meet their needs and allows for small group work to help my readers grow. One thing that some of my students struggle with is staying on task for reading, some are unable to sustain reading. I hope that with more comfy spots to read in, they will sustain reading longer. It is a privilege to help foster and instill a true love for reading!

My Project

My students love reading! Help give them a comfy spot for reading! These comfy chairs will allow for my students to relax and enjoy a good book. Reading is at the center of success. This project will provide my students the flexibility with where they can sit during reading workshop. I currently have 2 bean bag chairs and some foam mats that I have purchased, the students love when they get a turn to use the bean bags. I would love for them to have more chances to have a spot that is comfortable which will allow them to sustain reading longer! “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”-Dr. Seuss

Thank you for considering this project!
