Cozy Up With a Good Book: An Engaging Environment.

My students need an inviting space to lure them over to visit the reading center more often. A space that children can go to cozy up with a good book.

My Students

The preschoolers in my classroom are serviced in a Title-I school where many of the children I serve come from a low income families.

The children in our program have demonstrated some type of delay and a need for early intervention to prepare them for their kindergarten year.

My goal as a teacher is to provide an engaging environment where children have access to good literature, art, music, hands on science and math activities as well as, rewarding social experiences and friendship building.

My Project

My students need a quiet, inviting space in our classroom to go to enjoy books. Quite often during center time, the reading center is overlooked for more tactile activities. This reading nook is large enough for 4 to 5 children to use together; building both literacy and social skills.

My goal is to create a space that is so comfortable and engaging that the children will choose this area more often and thus have exposure to an increased number of rich literacy experiences.

The addition of a separate and inviting space for reading will provide for my students the opportunity to experience multiple readings of favorite texts as well as opportunities to share, scaffold and collaborate with peers.
