My students need a new reading rug to hear stories and play group games. They would also love a new reading area to read by themselves or to a friend.
My school is a Title 1 school in New Jersey where many receive free or reduced lunch. My students are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom.
I teach a group of 32 energetic and eager students in a Title 1 District.
My students love to learn new things. One of the best ways for them to build their background knowledge on new things is through stories. Some of my students are ESL learners so new vocabulary for them also comes from hearing different stories. Group story time is a big part of their learning. They love to sit on the carpet and hear a story together and discuss different parts of the story and their favorite parts. They also love to take stories that they have heard and read them to themselves and friends in a quiet area.
In my classroom, my class gathers to the rug multiple times throughout the day for various activities. The rug is a great place to bring the class together. My class reads a group story together on the rug. During large group literacy time my students are able to learn background knowledge on our different themes, holidays, and special events. They are able to discuss with friends different aspects of the stories and talk about their favorite parts.
My students need a comfortable rug to meet for group time and a chair to sit and read quietly.
My students also love to read stories that they have heard before or discover a new book in their literacy center. They like to sit with a friend and read to them or read quietly to themselves. I can always find at least one of my students reading a book during center time. It would be nice for them to have a comfortable place to discover there love for reading.
