My Students

Our school is filled with students who love to read and interact with one another in a peaceful and friendly environment. Besides the classroom, our school gives teachers and students the opportunity to go outside and learn in a comfortable and peaceful environment, the reading garden. The reading garden serves as a classroom for all classes. Students have the ability to read, write, have discussions and conduct research and experiments throughout classes taking place in the reading garden. Every teacher and student at our school brings out diverse and unique experiences that integrates our learning process with engagement. The reading garden is one location at our school that this unique learning process is able to take place.

My Project

The chairs we have for our students in the reading garden need to be preserved in order to provide use for many years to come. The reading garden is utilized as a classroom in order to provide the students a more relaxed setting when discussing diverse topics. In addition, it allows students with a variety of learning styles to work with others within their class, as well as other students throughout the building. The storage unit will enable us to preserve the chairs so numerous children can benefit from the reading garden with comfort, allowing our learning and engagement to be at its maximum potential for many years to come.
