The students we have are hardworking kids. They are struggling learning the foundations they need to become fluent readers. Our students come to class and are dedicated, they work so hard. They have wonderful positive attitudes. They are like little sponges, ready and willing to take in our strategies to become a better reader. Nothing compares to seeing them have breakthroughs. That “ah-ha” moment the lightbulb comes on. They are so proud of themselves. I’m so proud of them every day.
My students don’t get “specials” (p.e., art, computer, library) They have reading tutoring instead. So all day they are stuck at a table or desk. I want to give them comfy floor seats for a spot to feel comfortable and special. That will turn into a positive mindset that’s focused and ready to put in some work to build a better reading foundation. I would love to see their faces light up with a gift like this! These seats will be perfect for our tutoring groups. Also, the need for ink is huge! We print individual growth charts, diagnostic test results, and passages.
