Reading Is Our Thing

My students need 20 seat sacks and 20 headphones (one for each student) that will last us the school year.

My Students

As a new teacher, I am not able to provide all of the luxuries to my students that some of my colleagues are fortunate to have. My students love our daily 5 time, but have very little space to store their own books. They also have to share 3 headphones in our listening center.

I have an amazing group of first graders that love coming to school in our Dr.Seuss themed classroom.

My students look forward to our daily 5 time every day. They make do with the materials we have, but I would love to give them more. They need their own headphones for our listening center. They also need a seat sack to store their books. They love reading books, but sometimes they don't fit in their tiny book boxes, so they have to put them back on the shelves. To a first grader, this is heartbreaking because "someone will choose my book".

My Project

Having seat sacks in our classroom will improve our classroom in so many ways. Our seat sacks will allow my students to keep their favorite books at their seats. And each having a set of headphones will help us learn responsibility in taking care of our material, as well as cutting down on germs.

These tools will help me set my students up for success and teach students responsibility, organization, and how to take care of their books as well as build confidence as a reader.
