Picture yourself curled up with a good book sitting in your favorite comfy spot. Doesn't that sound nice? I would love for my little learners to have that opportunity too, so they can really enjoy reading!
I teach full day Kindergarten at a high poverty school.
All students receive free breakfast and lunch and, unfortunately, lack some of life's most basic necessities. The majority of students who attend my school are English Language Learners and speak little to no English when first entering Kindergarten. Even though these students face many challenges they are very kind, caring, polite, and hard working. My class is filled with the most friendly, lovable, respectful kids you will ever meet!
My students need some soft seats so they will have a comfortable place to sit while reading. Being comfortable will encourage them to use our classroom library and explore books, so their reading time will be more enjoyable. I believe offering a fun and cozy place to sit will also help them to develop the skill of reading for pleasure-- one of the most important keys to becoming excellent readers. I am also asking for book baskets, which will help us organize our reading corner and make it much more accessible and easy for the Kindergarten kids to use.
Your help with my project will enable young students to develop a love of reading and become lifelong readers.
Your donations will provide a comfy, cozy library corner for many appreciative Kindergarten students. Best of all, these soft seats and book baskets will benefit students in my classroom for years to come. Thank you for helping my students get "Comfy Cozy" and become better readers!
