I teach a first-grade class in the South Bronx. Seventy-eight percent of the students in this school participate in the free-lunch program. In our school, we are trying to come up with innovative ways to develop the literacy of our students. The children come to our reading area many times a day to be taught new reading skills and reinforce old ones. I use a variety of tools to reach the diverse learners in my class. However, classroom space is a commodity in short supply in my building, so it is hard for me to store all the supplies I need to implement different learning strategies. Our class needs storage space for our learning supplies that doesn't take away form our learning space. A reading and writing center from Classroom Direct would help solve this problem and be an invaluable addition to our classroom. This center, shaped like an easel, provides a firm support for a large pad of paper for easy writing that the class can see. The four handy storage tubs and metal shelf have lots of space to organize all the necessary materials. Moreover, casters allow the center to be moved anywhere in the classroom and then put away in a corner when not being used. This reading and writing center would help me organize my lessons and allow me to teach my students much more efficiently. Thank you for considering this proposal.
