Help me give my students a Bungee chair, two Comfy Saucer chairs, a rug to read on, and four sets of 5 middle school-relevant novels to inspire new levels of learning.
I am very biased, but I think I have some of the most incredible 11-13 year olds on the planet in my classroom every day. I moved across the country to work in a school that some call "high need." I have discovered that they are high need indeed, but also high reward.
My students are constantly seeking new ways to learn, and I am seeking new tools to support them.
Middle school students require more strategies and resources to engage them. For this project, I am hoping to provide them with a more comfortable environment in which to learn. I am hoping to purchase rugs, flexible seating, and new, age-appropriate books for our classroom library!
It's a known phenomenon that kids are not reading as often as they used to. Teachers are consistently having to think of new ways to engage and motivate students, especially as they get older. I know for a fact that many of my students do not have access to books or a calm, comfortable reading environment at home. This takes a toll on their reading scores, and each year they are falling further behind. I strive to provide my students with a classroom space in which they feel comfortable and confident pushing themselves in reading and writing.
Through supporting our goal of gaining more comfortable seating and relevant, interesting books, you are saying you believe in equal opportunity and the lost art of curling up with a good book!
My goal is for at least 70% of my students to be reading at grade level by the end of this year!
If we can ignite a love of reading in students before high school, that can sustain them for the rest of their lives!
