Readers Are Leaders

My students need some comfortable seating options, headphone organization, and a display for showing books that we are focusing on during different units.

My Students

I have a classroom full of 23 eager to learn first graders, and they are the most amazing group of kids. They come to school excited about the day and ready to work hard and learn a lot. They have a variety of different interests and all love story time. The first thing they do when they come to class is look at the story books I have set out to read for that day. They love books and the classroom library! My classroom is also full of students whose families speak only Spanish at home. My school is a high poverty school in Memphis, TN. Our school is also a very large school, and even though it is large the students still feel that it is their home and they are welcomed there. We want it to be a high learning environment and want these students to have every opportunity available to them.

My Project

I am requesting a book shelf display, floor pillows, and a listening center headphone holder. My students love going to the different centers I have in my classroom. My listening center is in desperate need of some soft seating and organization. As of right now my students do not have anywhere to sit besides the floor. My students also love reading, and enjoy reading books on the same topic or the same author. Having a bookshelf that displays the books that we are studying will be a great asset to my classroom.

As a teacher I already spend a lot of my own money out of my pocket, and because I am a fairly new teacher, I don't have as many supplies as veteran teachers.

Students will be able to enjoy going to the different centers in my classroom, and they will be comfortable and will enjoy seeing their favorite books on display.
