My students need comfy floor cushions and wiggle mats and a rug to create a "just right" reading space.
I have the BEST job in the world. I am a librarian in a school that serves almost 900 eager, curious students. The library is the heart of our wonderful school. It is is hub of activity for the many students and faculty who gather there daily. Each week, my youngest readers gather to hear stories on the rug and create related crafts. Learners in the intermediate grades write their own puppet plays based on classic texts and perform them. Talented middle school students learn about their community and propose ideas for making it better.
With the support our our amazing school community, our library sponsors six evening events per year and distributes over 1,200 FREE BOOKS to our school families.
Although our school is at over 75% poverty level, our school library still needs to be a welcoming space that supports all of our learners.
My youngest learners need to have a cozy, welcoming space in the library that can support the needs of early primary learners. We need to provide a "reading home" for our emerging readers.
My library serves everyone in the school community! Every six days, over 800 children from Kindergarten through Grade 8 are welcomed into the space. It is important the the room is a haven for all of the readers who come there.
Who doesn't remember finding exactly the right spot to read?
Maybe it was a quiet corner in a bedroom? or even a tent in the yard? Or a comfy chair in a family space? My youngest readers need cozy spaces to curl up with a good book. Currently my tiny readers have two choices: the reading rug or chairs that are designed for middle schoolers. This grant can change that!
Wiggle pads and comfy cushions will allow my emerging readers to find that "just right spot" in our library to enjoy a book. Selecting their cushion and its location offers powerful choices to my emerging readers.
