Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our class is focused on some of the most important aspects of learning - reading and writing. Many of my students struggle in these areas, but I see them growing every day in their abilities.

My students are funny, creative and enjoy being challenged.

They challenge me every day to be the best teacher that I can be. I have 40 students in two classes, 8 of those are labeled with some sort of Special Education need. 5 are students who have been English Language Learners but have achieved proficiency of the English language.

My Project

As a reading teacher, it is super important to me to give my students as much motivation to read as possible. My students will be excited to sit in our new bean bag chairs and read independently. They will also love to collaborate at our round tables, either up high or on the floor.

I can't wait to see students using our flexible seating options to soak up a new book!

Being comfortable is a huge part of being able to focus on their books and become better readers. Sitting in a small group with me will be that much more engaging as their busy bodies can gently move back and forth on our wobble stools!
