My Students

Do you have a favorite place where you love to read? Isn't it amazing to be surrounded by comfort, and diving into your favorite book? My students are beginning readers, and instilling a love of reading is crucial at this stage of their development.

My students are eager readers and enthusiastic learners.

My students are first graders and come from a variety of backgrounds, including students whose second language is English. Having a comfortable space for them to read in is essential for them to build stamina as independent readers.

My Project

It is important to instill a love of reading in children, and first grade is a crucial age for that. First graders are beginning readers, and their attitudes about reading that they develop now will carry on with them throughout their school career and beyond. I want my students to love to read and to be excited about reading time.

My students need comfortable areas to enjoy their books.

I need two rugs and two sets of pillows to provide them with this space. My students will want to read for longer periods of time, if they have a comfortable space in which to read. Showing my students that I value their reading time, by providing them with these materials, will let them know how important their passion for reading is to me.
