Let's Get Comfy While Reading

Help me give my students a comfy place to go and read during the day. These soft seats will allow them to take their book to a cozy spot in our room and share their love for reading.

My Students

Do you remember when you fell in love with reading? The feeling you get when you find a cozy spot to read your favorite book. My kindergarten students are beginning to share this excitement while they learn to read. Our class is made up of all different levels of children who are learning to read, some more advanced than others, but they all have one thing in common. Their excitement and love for reading!

Wouldn't it be wonderful to give our diverse students a place to go and read that wasn't hard and stiff?

Somewhere they would be excited to go to every day?

My Project

Reading should be engaging and fun for children. We read every day for 20-30 minutes privately and with a partner. Currently students must sit at their tables and chairs to read. We only have a small carpet and the rest of the room is tiled floor.

This project will allow my students to take their soft seats and books and snuggle up in a relaxing area of our room, away from their desks.

It will allow my class to enjoy their reading time even more and the novelty of sitting anywhere they like will help enhance their love for reading!
