My school is a Reading First school. I am trying to create a fluency center where students can go to read books, magazines, readers' theater, and other texts to improve their fluency skills. I am trying to provide a quiet and comfortable place for students to read independently, with a partner or in small groups. This area needs to be conducive to learning in order to motivate students to read and improve their fluency skills. I would like this fluency center to include comfortable seating that will entice the children to read and also to make reading enjoyable. I need help providing my inner city students with a "Comfy Cozy" fluency center. I am asking for six bean bag chairs and four large floor pillows.
