My Students

My students are in a rural school in Alabama. Most of my students receive free or reduced rate lunch. Our school is a Title I school.

My students love to learn to read.

Some students have special needs. Students will love to have furniture just like at their homes. Students will have super comfortable seating while reading. Students will be reminded of home while enjoying the familiar look of cozy living room furniture .The goal is to make every student feel at home.

My Project

The products I selected such as the little comfy sofa and comfy chair will provide comfortable seating.The students will explore more reading, because they will have a sofa and a chair. The furniture will allow more seating to help utilize reading and math skills.

Our reading area needs a more home like place for students.

The comfy sofa and chair will help them have their space within the classroom that is theirs. Students will have better focus and interaction between themselves.
