I would like to provide my accelerated 7th and 8th grade students with a comfortable area to read in our crowded classroom. It would encourage more independent reading if they could have a quiet area with comfortable chairs to look forward to relaxing with a good book of their choosing. I teach 7th and 8th grade students in a Chicago Public School. I am looking for a donation of 1 or 2 comfortable chairs that would enhance our reading corner. All 31 students will have a chance to use the chair weekly. I would love to let these deserving kids have a "teen area" to encourage independent reading and let them know that it is okay to be smart, to enjoy books,to relax occasionally, and let some of the pressures of being a teen fade for a few minutes.
