HOME For Books

My students need a place to keep their books. These 15 chair pockets would be the perfect place for my students when they check out books from our classroom library.

My Students

A typical day in my 2nd grade class is exciting and engaging. My students are actively involved in learning. They are eager to learn and strive to do their best. I am striving to mold life-long learners and readers. I believe everyone can learn and will learn if given the opportunity.

I teach 2nd grade at a Title 1 school in North Carolina where more than 50% of our students receive free or reduced lunch.

The parents in my classroom are supportive and appreciative of what I do for their child. My students are very special to me and I have had the privilege to loop this year with them - so this gives us a second year together. We have a very special bond, kind of like a family. They are all kind, caring, and very generous. They are hard workers who strive to do well and make me happy. They love books and enjoy being read to. They like checking out books from our classroom library as well as the school library. My students enjoy reading books and sharing their books with each other. My goal is for my students to continue to grow strong in their friendship and continue to have a strong desire to be better readers and life long learners.

My Project

These 15 chair pockets will make my students very happy since right now they don't have a HOME for their individual books. We have tried Ziploc bags and cheap canvas bags, which wear thin and get holes in them. My students love reading and they are handling their books a lot, so they need something strong and durable to hold their books when they are not being read. These chair pockets are made of denim and would last me years. I would be able to continue to use them year after year. My students read many times throughout the day either individually or with a partner. I know they would appreciate a safe place to keep their books. With these chair pockets, my students would always have a quick access to books at their finger tip.

The donation of these chair pockets would provide a safe place for our books when they are not being read.

It would help to protect our books over time. These pockets would also provide a quick access for my students to their books - right there on the back of their chair. My students have their own desk, their own supplies, and these chair pockets would provide a HOME for their own books.
