My Students

My students come from diverse living situations. My classroom is a place they can grow, and it is a safe place to figure who they are and where they want to go.

This reading bench will give them differentiated ways to learn and grow.

When students are afforded the ability to use different resources and explore the world in a way that interests them, it is amazing the work they can produce. Please help by funding these project. Thanks in advance.

My Project

Even the most reluctant readers will want to relax on this bench and read. It has great organization for leveled reading. This bench will provide a great place where students can relax, read and get carried away by a great fiction story or learn about their favorite topic in a non-fiction story.

I have the perfect spot in my classroom for this reading bench to be tucked away so that students can enjoy reading by themselves or with a partner.

Please help my students out. Donate to this cute reading bench and contribute to their love of books and reading. Thanks in advance.
