Ms. K. from Oxford NC is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading Nook

My students need items for a reading nook. I have chosen 3 bean bag chairs as well as paper for us to write on during book discussions.

My Students

Every day my reading classes must come in and read for 15 minutes. I feel so bad that they must sit in their desks to do this. I want them to be able to sprawl out the way we do when we read at home. There is nothing better than laying down and reading a good book.

My students are at all different reading levels.

At the beginning of the year I battled them every day to sit and read. Now when their reading time is up they ask me for more time. It makes my heart so proud to know that they truly enjoy reading! They think it is so cool that I sit and read them and they will recommend books to me.

My Project

Each day when the students come in they read silently. The reading nook will allow the students to have comfortable spots to silently read. We will also use the reading nook area to discuss books we are reading as a class, learn new literary elements and share our reading choices. The students will be able to use the chairs to feel more comfortable while they read. Each day they will have an opportunity to pick a spot in the room to read. This will allow them to truly relax and enjoy a good book. They will be able to spread out more and avoid the distractions of others.

This project will truly make a difference to my students.

They truly do feel a safe haven when they can sit down with a good book. Knowing that they can come in and enjoy a good book will truly make such a difference.
