My Students

Do you remember when you were 6 and couldn't sit still in those hard school chairs or on the carpet? My students are having that same difficulty and it's interfering with them losing themselves in a good story. With this distraction they are even having trouble understanding what they are reading.

My students are typical 6 and 7 year old that are having difficulty finding a comfortable spot to read and their hard chairs aren't helping.

They love to share stories with each other but often have difficulty focusing on a story as they are moving all around or the student across from them is ruining their concentration. What we need in our classroom is something that will help our students sit comfortably, so they can get lost in the wonder of reading.

My Project

We are asking for comfort chairs seating group. My students love to read and this comfy chair set will keep that love alive. Now I watch them reading together in their uncomfortable, hard school chairs wiggling and squirming all around. Before I know it, they lose their concentration and start to distract others. They often tell me that their chair or the carpet is so uncomfortable and ask for comfy chairs that they have seen in other classrooms. They tell me being more comfortable will help them get deeper in a book. They want to sit together to read so their friends will want to read the same book. They plain and simple said a more comfortable seat will help them read more. They want to read for longer periods of time, but the squirming stops them from doing so.

You have the chance to foster the love of reading in primary students.

You have the chance to build memories centered around books. You have a chance to make a difference in many little ones lives for years to come. You have a chance to help students get lost in the wonder of reading. Please help the squirmy worms read more!
