My students are special. They are inquisitive and energetic learners. They love challenges and are always willing to try new things. They come from a wide range of differentiated backgrounds. There is an ELL (English Language Learners) population as well as students who are receiving free or reduced-price lunch. Some of my students come from well traveled and enlightened family situations but many others have very few opportunities. Using creativity along with books that will keep them engaged will encourage reading as the means to inspire students at all levels.
As a Media Specialist I am continuously looking for ways to encourage my students to read. Apart from the regular classroom I like to provide a fun and welcoming environment.
My students would love a comfortable non-traditional way to relax and read.
By having these chairs in my reading circle, the students will have the opportunity to sit and read in a relaxed manner, and not just sitting at a regular table.
I want the media center to be a place where my students can explore without risk and not be held to a specific genre or subject. This should be a place where they can just relax and enjoy reading.
