My students need a classroom carpet and floor seats to help them feel more comfortable while independently reading. Students will have free choice of reading materials which increases engagement coupled with comfort is a recipe for stronger readers.
My students are hard workers, creative, and desire to find their places in society. They anticipate and are excited for the opportunity to read books of interest. My students desire to read the newest books in their favorite series. They become engrossed, curious, and avid readers who are yearning to discover the new experiences. Their attendance is proof of their desire to take chances to learn ways to stimulate their minds. I believe in my students and I remind them daily of their abilities to be innovative, creative, and confident. When they are confident and believe they will achieve!
Each day is built around a variety of strategies to keep them engaged.
Some include group work, independent work, and teacher-led assignments. Each day is used to build upon the prior day to ensure we are meeting the students where they are in hopes to move them to grade level and above.
Our school is in the heart of Detroit, where some families find it difficult to maintain lucrative employment. One thing I know is these students are here because they desire to have more, become more, and create more!
These supplies will fit perfectly in my library area. I will place the carpet in front of the book shelves and the seats will be placed around the carpet. All of which will give the students a great space to independently read books of interest without crowding one another. We will use these items to aide in their process to become lifelong readers.
