My Students

I teach three different grade levels. Third, fourth and fifth grade students. My students come from a wide range of backgrounds, disabilities and home lives. They work hard and come to school eager and motivated to learn every day. They are kind to one another and are leaders in their community. My classroom is a special day class with students who have different learning styles and ability levels. We need a warm reading corner where they can sit and get lost in their books.

My Project

The cozy couch that I am requesting will provide my students to get comfortable and get lost in an interesting book. This reading corner will help my students focus, be comfortable and enhance their reading skills.

I want my students to feel like they are at home while reading.

During independent work time, they choose different spots around the room to go and read silently. This reading corner with the cozy couch will help provide them with a comfortable learning environment. It will also make our classroom feel more like a home to them. My kids love having different areas available to them. This will be a great addition to our classroom.
