My class has wide variety of learners who are all at different levels in learning. I have some students who really struggle with reading, I have others who are at grade level, and I even have some who are well above grade level.
No matter the level, I feel my job as their 2nd grade teacher is to help each child establish a love for reading.
My class uses sports teams as our theme: we all work toward the same goal of SUCCESS! We work together each day to help each other be successful. In our class we make sure every student is given what s/he needs in order to be successful. We are not worried about what is “fair.” We cheer on each other as each student accomplishes her/his goals because that’s what teams do.
One of the most important gifts I can give my students is a love of reading. In order to give that gift, I feel strongly I need a pleasant, comfortable place where my students can find that love. The chairs I am proposing will be used in our classroom reading area. Students will be permitted to take turns enjoying these cozy chairs while they read. My students have begged me for comfortable chairs in which to read. They love to be comfy while enjoying a good book. I firmly believe when students have a safe and relaxing place to read, they will develop a love of reading which will last a lifetime.
