Guided Reading Table and Chairs

My students need a reading table with chairs.

My Students

I love reading! I still have the first book that I ever learned to read, Monster on the Bus, and I truly believe as a kindergarten teacher that "the greatest gift is a passion for reading" - Elizabeth Hardwick. Children can never realize their full academic potential without the ability to read well.

My students are wonderful, hardworking, curious little people who love coming to school.

They all live in the city and attend the local public school. They receive free breakfast and lunch so they can focus in class. They love reading around the room, writing letters to each other, and sitting in the library "reading" books to one another. They are kind and helpful and have a ton of potential.

My Project

Last year I taught my guided reading groups on the library floor and it was hard for us all to be comfortable and therefore focused. As we were using the library to hold reading groups, it made it harder for children who wanted to come over and choose a book to read. It was awful! Having a proper reading table that groups can be called over to creates a sense of importance to the students, focuses students, and means the library will not be off limits to other students. The table has a proper surface so that after we read we can work on our word work using magnetic letters,white boards, and letter tiles to build words, word families and talk and learn about words we need to read.

The reading table will be used every day of the school year.

It is an invaluable resource that should be the basis of all kindergarten classrooms. Children come to school eager to learn to read,and when they fall behind they get disheartened. In order to teach reading properly and systematically, you need a reading table!
