My students need a motivational, engaging library and a comfortable chair to encourage independent reading and promote lifelong literacy.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
As a middle school reading specialist, I work with about 45 regular education students each year who have difficulty keeping up with their classes. These students have often struggled for most or all of their academic careers. By middle school, many of my students have shut down and have given up on reading. My role is to not only improve their literacy skills but to build confidence and hopefully inspire motivation for reading and lifelong learning.
Most struggling readers have phonological and comprehension gaps in their learning that, once filled, allow them to excel.
In order to motivate and reach adolescents, I need a highly engaging classroom and classroom library. My vision is a "coffee shop" like environment with pub tables, lamps, and flexible seating. I want a space where kids will not want to stop reading!
New books, such as Crossover, Night, and The Hate You Give, and comfy chairs will help to create a classroom atmosphere that is warm, engaging, and motivational. Students will want to read and read!
My classroom library is a constant work in progress that is ever growing and changing.
Continually, I seek out new books and materials that will motivate students to become voracious readers. There is a diverse collection of books based on genres and reading levels to meet each student's individual needs.
Additional books and a cozy little nook with new chairs will enhance our "coffee shop" like reading resource room.
