My Students

My students come from a semi-rural community. Many of them come from low-income homes and have limited access to text before coming to school. As a result, they need extra support and resources on their road to becoming successful readers.

I want to make reading exciting and enjoyable for my students who haven't always had positive experiences with reading.

I believe by creating an environment that promotes reading as a positive experience, students will be more empowered to learn.

Often the families of my students lack education and are unable to help their student. As a result, many of my students have a negative perception of reading and school in general. I believe that by creating a more welcoming environment where they can take charge and make some choices in their learning, I can help them overcome those negative connotations.

My Project

The students I see throughout the day are those who struggle with reading. They often come from homes where there are few if any books in their house, and they often don't have role models who are good reading models for them.

I am looking to add a few bean bag chairs and a teepee to create a cozy reading nook in my room.

I believe this will encourage my reluctant readers to become more excited about reading if they see that reading at school doesn't always have to be done at a table or desk. With these bean bags and teepee they will learn that reading can be so relaxing and can be done in fun places too!
