Don't Be A Square! Read in the Cozy Cube!

My students need a cozy fun place to relax and read.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Don't be a square, read in the cozy cube! Hi, I am a kindergarten teacher. My students are five and six years old. We have an all day kindergarten program. We do not take naps. Our learning goes on all day. I have 22 students that are in a very old classroom. Our school is in desperate need of a bond issue. We are overcrowded and our students definitely deserve updated classrooms and equipment.

My reading center is the last center that students choose. I have tried to put the most popular books and reading materials in the center, but the environment is not too inviting.

Competing with technology makes it hard to encourage students to choose the reading center. I need a fun place for kids to read. The reading Cozy Cube is a fun cube that students can actually crawl inside and read in! This will encourage reading and create an inviting atmosphere.

You will make is possible for my students to choose a book, explore, imagine and develop a love for books and reading at an early age. This will make a difference in their young lives and will last forever.
