Let's Get Comfy!

My students need 30 pillows to rest on during independent reading time.

My Students

Do you remember snuggling up to read a book and how it felt? I want my students to be able to get comfortable while reading a book.

I currently teach 22 first graders in a Title 1 School located in a high poverty and high crime area in Pennsylvania.

All of my students receive free breakfast and free lunch. The majority of my students are now reading at the proper reading and math level and I couldn't be prouder of them. Many of my students come from homes where English is not spoken.

My Project

I am requesting comfortable pillows for my reading area in the classroom. I want each of my students to be able to sit on a pillow while reading a book during independent reading time. These pillows will hopefully help my students develop a love of reading. Not only will the reading area be colorful, it will also be very comfy and inviting.

Please help make our reading area colorful and comfortable with 30 soft pillows.

I want to have enough pillows for each of my students next year. Please help my students snuggle up to a book. This would be a dream come true.
