TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need a cozy, comfortable and inviting reading area in the classroom with bean bag chairs, a rug, books, table and lamps.
Greenwich is a small rural/farming community in upstate New York, with graduating class sizes averaging 80 students. I have had the distinct privilege to work with many of my fifth grade students when they were in first and third grade.
My students are highly motivated and excited to discover and experience new curriculum everyday.
I enter my classroom every morning excited to see what these beautiful, kind and inquisitive 5th graders are going to teach me. We laugh, learn and have fun everyday. I am truly a better person because of them and am grateful for the ability to spend the year as a family.
I want to turn my classroom into a place that feels comfortable, cozy and invites students to sit down with a great book. I want to provide my students with a space that feels like home. What student wouldn't love a spot filled with organized books, a bean bag, rug, table and lamp in their classroom? A goal for my students this year is to LOVE reading and to increase their overall reading stamina. Providing my students with flexible seating will allow them a space to encourage a deeper experience with their book. Flexible seating has been shown to have great benefits for students.
Having a comfortable and inviting reading space will allow my students the ability to build their own identity as a reader.
When students are given choice and control over their own learning environment they feel empowered. An empowered student is unstoppable, courageous and determined. These students are less likely to be distracted, which will encourage a deeper experience with their book as well as increase their reading stamina. Most importantly, a bean bag chair, rug, table and lamp will make reading FUN! My students will be more motivated to read when they have this amazing reading space in their classroom
