A Cozy Reading Corner!
Help me give my students organized book storage and comfortable, kid-friendly seating for our reading corner!
This year I have a class of 14 transitional kindergartners. However, I typically have at least 24 students in my class. All of my students come from low-income families who qualify for the free lunch program. Our school is located in an inner-city neighborhood and hosts a multiculturally diverse group of families.
Though my students may not have much monetarily, they have the same wide-eyed, eager-to-learn attitude typical of children this age.
They love coming to school and they love learning new things. My hope is to provide them with the tools and resources they need to build a strong foundation of skills that will help them throughout their years in school.
I want my young students to develop a love of books and reading at an early age. Having a well-organized, aesthetically pleasing, and cozy reading area will create an enticing space that will invite them to enjoy books and read!
This project will provide my students with shelving to keep our books organized, and comfortable, kid-friendly seating to enjoy those books year after year.
The children will be able to easily find books they want to read with a color-coded system and books with the titles facing forward. They will then be able to read these books while sitting on soft, nature-inspired seats that look like tree stumps, which will be next to our class-made tree. How can you resist such a cozy reading space? They are sure to love being in the reading corner with these additions to the space!
