My Students

Snug and Comfort Reading Corner in the Library

Reading is one of the most important skills that students learn in their developmental years.

I want my students to develop a passion for reading. Students should be able to relax and read which can help them develop a life-long love for reading. When the students come to the library, they get excited about the books and other reading materials. One thing they are requesting is a more comfortable reading area. I want to create a snug and comfortable space in the library to help my students make reading growth.

We have 850 students who are under privileged and low income. Our entire student body receives free breakfast and lunch. Our school community is working diligently to improve the students’ reading comprehension. We are a school in need of improvement. We have many challenging students, and are looking for ways to motivate them to read.

My Project

Help me motivate my students to read vigorously!

Reading is one of the most important skills that students learn in their formative, developmental years.

I want my students to develop a passion for the written word and to love their reading time in the library. Our school is a school in need of improvement. We have many challenging students, and we are looking for ways to motivate them to read. One of the ways to increase fluency and comprehension is to have the students read independently every day. An uncomfortable metal table and chair is not where I want my students to spend their reading time; I want to provide them with a bright, colorful, and inviting space to learn the joy of relaxing with a great book

My end goal is to create special areas in the library to make reading fun and memorable for my students. My students cherish books and have a love for reading, but the library needs some comfortable and cozy reading areas. Any support or donation would be wonderful! Thank you so very much!
