My 5th grade English as a second language students are in need of some comfortable chairs for use during independent reading time. Currently, they are able to bring in a stuffed animal to lean their heads on as they read their books on the rug. They would love to have a clean, comfortable place to rest their backs as they enjoy their books. On a recent trip to one of our nearest libraries, my students were fascinated with these vinyl rockers that were located in the children's section. I would love to be able to provide them with these chairs because I know that they would love to read in a place where they were relaxed and could get "lost" in their books. Five of these chairs would be enough to let one table enjoy the comforts of the rug during reading time as they rotate each day. As children who struggle with reading, this would make them excited to read independently on the rug for the rest of the school year and give my future students years of comfort and enjoyment during reading time.
