Safe Space

My students need a comfy, safe book corner so they can sit back, relax and enjoy reading!

My Students

This will be my first year teaching, and as a new teacher, I want to give my students the best learning opportunity possible. My students have already progressed immensely with their positive attitudes and drive to learn every day! We will make sure to carry this throughout the school year. My school is located near Detroit, Michigan and 100% of the students come from low income families. All of the students in the school are entitled to free breakfast and lunch.

Whatever I am given, I will ensure to make my students have a safe, caring, and loving learning environment.

My Project

My kindergartners have found so much joy in reading, but they have no fun place to do it in our classroom. We have a book corner, but no pillows or chairs for them to really enjoy reading their books.

We need a couch in our classroom where my students can relax and enjoy the love of reading.

My students would utilize this couch every single day as they endured on their reading adventures. The couch also comes with storage for their books, which is something we need as there is limited storage in our classroom for our books.

I know with this couch my students will be even more ecstatic about reading and will be eager to get reading right as they step in the classroom.
