My students are seventh graders. They are full of questions and are truly interested in the world around them. They face challenges on a daily basis. Students are at different points in their academic journeys. Each student has identified and chosen personal goals for reading.
Learning is not always easy, but this does not dampen my students' desire to learn.
For many of my students, English is their second language. This comes with all sorts of obstacles, the overcoming of which is often as rewarding as the knowledge acquired.
Flexible seating options will allow my students to learn in comfort. Our classroom has desks with small writing surfaces that are attached to the main part of the desk. Some students are uncomfortable in these desks because their height prevents them from sitting comfortably. Think about it: don't you want to get comfy to read a good book?
A welcoming and comfortable space can open doors to engage students and stimulate dynamic learning.
We are slowly adding different furniture options, comfy reading nooks, pillows, carpets, and lamps to create an inviting atmosphere for a love of reading. I want my students to be able to find a good book, snuggle up and let the book take them away!
