Have you ever tried to read on cold, hard tile? That is where my students currently read due to the lack of comfortable areas in our classroom.
Our school is a low income school with 100% of our students receiving free breakfast and lunch.
Many of these students are English Language Learners. A majority of my students do not have access to books at home. They do not have a strong support system at home that will promote good reading habits. It is my job to build a love of reading while I see them for 8 hours a day in first grade.
My students need 7 bean bag chairs to sit on while reading. With these new bean bag chairs, students will be able to find a spot in the room and read comfortably. If they have a comfortable place to read, their reading stamina is likely to increase. Instead of seeing reading as something boring, they will begin to see it as enjoyable in their new chairs.
I know that if I were forced to read at a desk or on the cold hard tile, I wouldn't enjoy it.
If my students can experience the feeling of snuggling up to a good book, they will be more likely to do this outside of the classroom. Your donation will help produce lifelong readers from a first grade classroom in Central Washington.
