I teach second grade at a neighborhood elementary school in Florida. My class is comprised of 19 students from diverse backgrounds with various learning needs and challenges. They represent over five countries and three different languages. My students are eager learners. Every morning they enter the room with big smiles on their faces ready to learn. They are motivated by hands-on, engaging activities. They take pride in their work and are always striving for more knowledge.
We are a Title I school, which means that a high population of students receive free or reduced-price lunch.
My project is to purchase two reading nooks with bookcases. The bookcases will be around the perimeter of our classroom library. Students will be able to sit and get comfortable with a book in the reading nook.
It is amazing how finding a comfortable spot to read motivates readers.
My goal is to create a love of reading within all my students. I currently have purchased more books than I have room to display. These bookcases will allow me to display more books for the students to choose from. This will help to engage all my students in reading. Thank you for supporting my students’ love of reading!
