Reading Paradise

My students need comfortable seating in our classroom library center. We will use this center every day!

My Students

When you sit down and open a book, you most likely want to sit down in your most comfortable chair, and delve into a new adventure. Help my students feel at home while reading in our classroom library. Widening your imagination is impossible to do while sitting on hard vinyl flooring!

I am a new first grade teacher straight out of college.

If I could buy every necessity my students/classroom needed, I would, but it is unfortunately impossible for me to do so. The school I am teaching at is Title 1 and high poverty. 61% of students (and that number is growing) are on free or reduced lunch. The community is very supportive, but struggle financially. They often wish they could provide for their children but have issues in doing so. Your help (in whatever capacity) is deeply appreciated.

My Project

Every item I ask for, using DonorsChoose, is specifically with my students' needs in mind. The bean bag chairs I have requested will be useful for students to be comfortable while reading in our classroom library. Our classroom library is a great resource that students will use every day as a literacy center and for independent reading. I want students to feel at home in our classroom. With these chairs, they will help students be able to read in comfort without having to sit on the hard vinyl flooring that is in our classroom.

I want my students to be able to focus on opening their imaginations to new stories, not feeling so uncomfortable that they hope "reading time" will be over soon because their back or bottom hurts.

Your donations will help provide items that my students need in order to succeed in the classroom. Every donation is appreciated and will not be forgotten.
