Reading Requirements: Stadium Chairs, Books and a Book Display

Help me give my students high interest books. A book display is critical to make them accessible. Stadium seats provide flexibility to comfortably read and slime making materials and the necessary containers to take it home.

My Students

My students are a group of extremely curious and busy six and seven year old learners that need a rich and creative learning environment. We are a First Grade class in a small school district in California with no money available to purchase new books and other materials. My students come from a variety of backgrounds with 25% of the students learning English as a second language. My students are naturally inquisitive with never ending imaginations. They will throughly enjoy the exciting books and supplies in my project.

My Project

First graders spend a lot of time looking at and reading books. Classrooms typically only come with the official curriculum and usually have very few high interest books. My students need a variety of books that they will use to read during various parts of their day. They have a Read to Self Time, they read with cross age buddies, and they also take home books from the class library to read or to be read with at home. With out an ample supply of fresh books to keep my 25 First Graders engaged they will not have as many learning opportunities. A good solid book display goes hand in hand with getting the right books into their hands. Through a book display, I can create themes around books. And in turn those books are more likely to be selected because they are more visible and organized.

Currently stadium chairs are the preferred way to read books in my room.

These seats make it possible for students to self select flexible spaces in the room.

Most six and seven year olds like to experiment with combining materials to make slime. The package of deli containers and gallons of glue help make this possible. I am planning on doing a both a slime day and an Oobleck day. These types of activities help energize students and build their love of learning.
