Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a kindergarten teacher at P.S. 314 in Brooklyn, New York. Over 80% of our students receive free or reduced lunch. I was just placed in this kindergarten class about a month ago. The room is very bare. All of my students are bilingual. I am trying to create a cozy, warm, learning environment. One of my students favorite times is reading time. They love to be read to and love to go to the library and read. Unfortunately I do not have any cozy chairs or couches for them. My school does not have enough money to purchase these items. I would like to get three little beanbag seats from lake shore for my students. I think they will really enjoy them. This will help make their reading time fun.
