I am a first grade teacher at Holt Elementary in North Carolina. Our school has been working diligently to provide our little learners with many language arts activities. One of the main components of our literacy enrichment is Guided Reading. For the past two years I have been teaching guided reading in a "cramped" way to say the least. I work with a group of 4 to 7 children at a table that is too small for us all to cram around OR we sit on the FLOOR! We would all love to have a nice table to use for our guided reading sessions. Please help me get my young ones off the floor!
