My Students

I teach at a very small school. The group of students I have this year are very talkative and creative kids. I have had the privilege of teaching them when they were in second grade and now again in sixth grade. It is amazing to be able to see how much they have grown. They love to sit in random places in the classroom to do work. The only problem is that with such a low budget...I do not have a lot of options for them. This project is to help provide seating for a reading nook.

My Project

I would love to setup a reading nook for my students to sit comfortably and read. I feel that when you are reading a good book, it is easier to get lost in the text when you are comfortable and in a quiet place. A classroom reading nook would provide this type of reading environment. If a child can sit and read for long periods of time, then the child should show improvement in academic skill areas such as vocabulary skills. Please help my students become active readers and have a nice place to sit to read daily. Thank you for your help!
