Cozy Corner

My students need a cozy rug in the reading area so they can comfortably enjoy reading throughout the year.

My Students

Imagine having to gather around for a read aloud, only to sit on a cold, hard floor. My 31 second grade students do just that every time we meet in the reading area of our classroom. A reading area should be colorful, comfortable and inviting!

My students are second graders in a public school.

They are happy to read and be read to in class. Students love sitting together and sharing favorite stories with each other. They enjoy reading a variety of genres, including, poetry, mysteries, fairytales, fiction and non-fiction books.

My Project

A rug in our reading area would provide comfort and joy to my eager readers. They would be so excited to sit on a comfortable, warm rug! It would also serve as a nurturing area in the room where students could take a break from sitting at rigid desks and chairs. They would love a cozy spot to curl up with a basket of books, share stories with friends, and listen to various read alouds throughout the school day.

Students would truly love to have a welcoming rug in the reading area.

This particular rug would also reinforce the various genres of books they get to read from our classroom library. We hope you can help make a difference!
