My Students

The wonderful thing about my students is that have a passion for information. Many of my students are investigative and like seeking out information on their own. They're eager to please with fun facts that everyone may not know.

My students are also avid readers.

The elementary school reading teachers did a wonderful job of instilling reading as a good habit and many of my students read every day. My students love getting as many book recommendations as they can!

My Project

I'm asking for three bean bag chairs to build a reading nook for our classroom library. The bean bags will encourage more students to read. As many avid readers know, being comfortable is a big factor in reading.

With the bean bags, I can reach more students who are reluctant to read to find the perfect book, and I can excite my avid readers with a cozy space for them to relax.

I hope to be able to share my passion for reading through this new cozy spot for my students. I plan on allowing students to rotate through the bean bags on a schedule to promote equity as a characteristic in my classroom.
