My Students

Do you know that feeling you get when you are able to get comfortable, open a book and become immersed in the story? My 1st grade students love to find their favorite story from the classroom story and read it over and over again but need an organized and inviting place to enjoy their books.

Sparking and continuing a love of reading for a lifetime is a goal I have for all of my students.

The look they get on their faces when enjoying a book is priceless!

My Project

All my students love to read. These materials will help enhance that love of reading through having an organized area of the classroom that is also inviting and a place that everyone loves to visit.

The materials to create a book nook in our classroom will spark excitement for reading in all of my students!

The bookcases, rug and pillows will allow me to create a place for students to be eager to visit on a daily basis. They will be able to pull a book from the shelf, get comfortable and fully immerse themselves in the book they are reading!
