My students come from a variety of cultural backgrounds. Most are English Language Learners and many are fairly new to the country. They are in a variety of different levels of English acquisition. Our school is in the heart of the Silicon Valley with a community that is very involved in the field of technology. The parent community is very supportive and highly values education. The students are held to a high standard and are eager to learn. Reading is a huge focus in first grade. We are constantly working on phonics, fluency and comprehension in small groups and each child is reading at their own individual reading level. As students progress through the levels I am constantly assessing them and conferencing with them about their reading.
