Mrs. Drew Sims from Hugo OK is requesting flexible seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

A Cozy Reading Corner With Flexible Seating

Help me give my students a comfy reading area with flexible seating options. The beanbags, floor chairs, and floor pillows will allow for that flexible seating to take place within my classroom.

My Students

I teach 5th grade English-Language Arts and Reading. Our school is in a small town, where most people know each other. I have students in my room that are constantly wanting to show me something in a book that they are reading. I get to see glimpses of how that reading flame is beginning to grow. If I could provide a comfortable area for my students to sit and read, I think their interest in reading would really grow and expand.

My Project

These items will give my students a relaxing area in my classroom where they can feel comfortable reading individually or with a friend. They will select a book from my bookshelf on their reading level to help increase their love for reading and it offers extra practice to increase their reading ability and comprehension.

For example, when a student completes their daily assignment they can go to the reading center, relax on the bean bags or on the carpet and read a book of their choosing on their reading level.

They will get extra practice in reading as well as building confidence in their ability to read out loud for group reading time.
