My Students

My students love to get cozy with a new book. I introduce two new stories to them weekly and they also check out books on a daily basis from our elementary library. A majority of the students in my classroom, and the school, come from low income families. A lot of times, the only reading they do is within the setting of my classroom.

Our school is located in southern rural Missouri, so they don't get a lot of cultural experiences in our little town.

I believe the main reason they love to read is because it takes them on a journey that allows them to explore new things.

My Project

My students love to read new books! We have a classroom library already complete with a large bookshelf, a lot of book options, a small table, and a rug. I want to make the reading nook cozier and more enjoyable for them by adding these two rocking chairs.

Being comfortable while diving into a new a book can take the reading experience to a whole other level.

I want my reading corner to be a privilege for students. The rocking chairs are not only an addition to my classroom library, but they would also build upon our ever-growing collection of flexible seating options.

Flexible seating allows the students to pick from a variety of seating options so that they may do their work to the best of their ability. It allows students to take the learning environment into their own hands.
