My Students

Our school consists of more than 200 1st grade students! In my classroom I have 22 of those amazing little learners! My school also receives Title I funding which means they are trying to bridge the gap between low income students and other students. Even though my students may come from different types of backgrounds, they are always eager to learn something new. Most students face challenges every day, whether we know about it or not and it is known to hinder their learning. Although, when my students come into my classroom each day, it is without a doubt that I make sure they know they are loved and cared for. Many children struggle with reading at this age and others are soaring! It is vital to these little ones that they have a comforting and relaxing nook to be at ease and read.

My Project

First grade is the most critical time when students are expected to make such extraordinary progress in reading independently. One of the BEST ways to achieve this goal is having students read as much as possible in a soothing little nook where they feel welcomed and safe! The main problem in our classroom setting is sitting alone on the cold floor or in a hard, stiff chair in the classroom library…which is not inviting for the little ones to want to read at all. These comfy bean bag chairs and soft area carpet will without a doubt, improve my students reading environment and love for books! The students will be able to lay on their back or bellies to read their books on the soft carpet which will make their reading experience so much more enjoyable. Being able to lounge in the comfy bean bag chairs will allow the children to feel secure and relaxed while being focused on their book in hand.
