My Students

My students are second graders. They are full of excitement and love learning. They are also the most thoughtful and caring kids. They are constantly thinking of others. They never expect anything in return. They enjoy hands-on projects and absolutely love to read.

My students enjoy reading and having the freedom to pick books of their interest.

We recently added a ton of new books to our class library. My students are given time every day to read a book of their choice.

My Project

My students need a nice cozy place to read. I have been working on developing a nice library and reading nook. We have really added to the library this past year and now it's time to focus on the nook. My students love reading and are always asking to read.

I like to give my students the freedom to read anywhere in the room.

More often then not they just lay on the floor, but with a nice reading nook were they are comfortable they can get lost in a good book. With these bean bags it will give my students a comfortable place to read and get them out of their seats.
