Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach third grade, and one of the areas I spend a lot of time on is reading. My students do not just reading during reading instruction; they also read books during the day from the classroom library. In my classroom, I have a large classroom library. The students love to read books from the library. I would like to get some bean bag chairs to make the area more cozy and comfortable for the students to read. Reading is very important in my classroom. I encourage my students to read whenever they can. I would like to have a nice, cozy quiet spot for them to be able to read. To help create a cozy reading nook, I would like to have some bean bag chairs for the students to sit in while they read. The students often sit on the floor. I have carpeting, however, it is not very comfortable to sit and read on. I want to promote reading for enjoyment in my classroom. I know that having bean bag chairs will greatly encourage them to relax, and read a good book.
