My Students

My classroom is made up of 20 amazing learners. They come to class ready to learn despite the obstacles they face prior to stepping foot in the classroom.

We are a Title I school and almost all of my students are English language learners.

My students love coming to school because I make learning fun. My students work hard each and every day. Unfortunately, they need supplies that I can’t provide on my own. This includes beanbag chairs and flashlights for special reading days!

My Project

During Guided Reading, my students rotate to different literacy centers while I focus on small group reading instruction. One of their favorite areas is our classroom library. I am requesting 2 beanbag chairs which will be used to create a warm and welcoming environment. My students will use them to read during our independent/buddy reading time.

I’ve also included flashlights!

I’m hoping to start implementing “Flashlight Friday” where students would get to read in the dark with a flashlight!

By supporting this project, you will be helping my students to improve their reading skills and foster their love of literacy.
