We're Ready to Read! Now We Need a Place to Sit!

My students need somewhere to sit to enjoy our new books! Our new classroom library was funded by wonderful donors and we can't wait to enjoy it!

My Students

Do you remember your classroom library from when you were in elementary school? Unfortunately our classroom has no comfortable seating for us to enjoy our new library.

My students love to read and are so excited to get our new books from our wonderful donors.

Now they need a place to sit and relax while they are reading! Bean bag chairs would be perfect for my students to have some individual reading time within our classroom.

My Project

If we have bean bag chairs in our classroom, we will be able to enjoy individual reading time. Our classroom consists of only desks and chairs- not the most comfortable place to sit! These can also be used as a reward for positive behavior! My students will be on their best behavior so they can have their turn in the bean bag chair.

We have had such a positive experience with Donors Choose and are looking forward to working with more generous people who value the love of reading!

This project will allow my students to really enjoy our library!
