A New Reading Nook

My students need new reading seats for independent reading to replace our old beanbags.

My Students

Our inner city, public school has a high transit, low income, and bilingual population of 800 at risk students (grades K-5).

Our family atmosphere helps foster a safe learning environment to students of single-parent families, risky neighborhoods, and challenging circumstances.

High expectations and a no excuses ambiance at our school allows our students to overcome their challenges outside our school grounds. A strong administration and passionate faculty and staff help teach, nurture, and love our resilient and hard working students.

My Project

Students are encouraged to grab a book nook, find a comfy spot, and let their minds get lost in a great book. Unfortunately, our beanbags are losing their spunk and are splitting at the seams (from years of love). Our current beanbags are not the most comfy or flexible reading nook either. The addition of the 5 easy to move and easy to clean-up reading seats would make our reading time even more cozy. They will be able to be used for many years to come, and won't give out like our current beanbags. Students remind me daily of the splitting seams.

Please help bring comfort to our reading classroom!
