My students need bean bag chairs to make reading a pleasure! I want my students to truly be able to "curl up with a good book" in my classroom!
Studies estimate that children learn an average of 4,000 to 12,000 new vocabulary words each year as a result of reading! This is why students need a safe, cozy, comfortable place to curl up with a book in my classroom!
Most students in my school district have a home life where they are expected to be independent at a young age Safety, security, and consistency are a luxury to these students.
It is my job to provide those important factors to my students at school everyday; which is why I strive to provide them with the very best materials to make the classroom environment feel safe, secure, and consistent.
The bean bags will be a comforting and appealing part of reading centers. I love the phrase "curl up with a good book" and I know that most of my students are not actually able to do that at home. I want to plant a seed, and nourish their love of reading! I know that making a location in the classroom, specifically for reading, very appealing is one way to start nourishing a habit of reading for pleasure!
According to studies the highest achievers in 5th grade read more than 200 times as many minutes per day as the lowest achievers.
If I can help make my students the highest achievers by creating an appealing, comfortable, cozy, and safe reading environment in my classroom I will have changed not only their reading habits, but I will have also changed their lives. Reading is the answer to help my students succeed!Read More
