Ms. Garcia from Hackensack NJ is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Flexible Reading Classroom!

My students need pillows, wobble cushions, beanbags and a corner canopy which will help them focus during instructional time. My students need a fun and a motivating reading hut to become engaged and develop their independent reading skills!

My Students

I have the privilege of working with 25 Kindergarten students who are eager to learn, have a lot of energy and love school. We are a chatty and very active bunch!

My Project

The expectations for Kindergarten have changed! Years ago students played and had "nap time", but those days are long gone. Students are expected to learn reading, writing, develop social skills and do a lot of homework. My students will be using Flex-Space Wobble Cushions on the rug or/and at their seats to help them release energy which will help students who struggle focusing become engaged in learning.

We all know the value of becoming life long readers.

I want to create a reading hut which will encourage my students to read and see that reading is fun! My goal this school year is to create an inviting, safe, and conformable space in my classroom that encourages students to read throughout the day. After taking a Literacy Training this summer and researching I soon realized that had to create a "Reading Hut" with bean bags, and soft pillows so that students can read conformably.

The materials that I would like for my project will be used by all the students in my classroom. Students will have the opportunity to move the seating materials as they need.
