Hive Of Busy Bees In Need Of A Place To Buzz Through Books

My students need a carpet to sit on while reading independently.

My Students

My first year teaching in this school brings the challenge of turning my classroom into a place students want to be. As my Busy Bees return to our hive this year, they must land on a cold tile floor for reading. Uncomfortable readers are distracted readers!

My classroom is a reading classroom.

Some books I choose for my students, some books students choose for themselves. Books recommended by peers are always preferred. When students share books with each other, they awaken the curiosity within their classmates.

My Project

I want my classroom to be as inviting as possible and I'm excited to request funding for my first project. Having the World Carpet would allow me to offer an enjoyable area for students to relax and buzz into a good book. The World Carpet will also aid in the review of the continents.

Please help me offer my students a warm, cozy reading area!

"Reading changes your life. Reading unlocks worlds unknown or forgotten, taking travelers around the world and through time. Reading helps you escape the confines of school and pursue your own education. Through characters - the saints and the sinners, real or imagined - reading shows you how to be a better human being." Donalyn Miller, The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child
