Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

My classroom is built upon the teaching philosophy that students are all able to achieve and reach excellence regardless of their background, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status. With that being said, all of my students are minorities and about 30% are ESE students. They have working parents that join zoom periodically throughout the day. However, for the most part they are working diligently on their own. These students are part of our Title one program and they come from challenging backgrounds financially. The parents need additional learning resources to teach their kids and I strongly believe these resources will make a difference in their academics.

All students deserve a teacher that will set high expectations for them and I don't place limits upon them because they will thrive despite their adversities.

These parents are all digital and have borrowed laptops through the school but they are lacking phonic cards, phonemic awareness activities to stimulate higher order thinking, and more. All of these students deserve a positive and safe classroom environment where everyone feels accepted,loved, permitted to make mistakes, and ready to learn. These students are always eager to ask questions and make connections. They are highly engaged and hungry to learn.

My Project

Print awareness, letter knowledge, irregular words and multisyllabic words are essential components for teaching reading instruction.The magnetic alphabet letters, the books, the phonic activities and phonemic activities are guaranteed to help students understand the alphabetic principles, decoding and encoding techniques, and phoneme manipulation. It is crucial that reading intervention takes place at home as well as the school. We want to prevent the downward spiral of reading failure by identifying students who need extra help in their reading before they experience serious failure. The sooner the intervention occurs the more likely a child will regain ground. Studies show that students who are poor readers at the end of the first grade almost never acquire average level reading skills by the end of Elementary. If the building blocks of reading are strong then vocabulary, reasoning skills to support comprehension, and general knowledge will increase.

There is a positive relationship between the amount of students' out of school, independent reading and measures of reading comprehension, vocabulary, and reading speed.

If I can get more books into the homes of these kids along side explicit instructions on how to use phonics based activities we can drastically increase reading fluency, comprehension and knowledge. I have placed supply box on the list to score phonics card, and letters. I have added book holders so the students can have their own sets of books at their desks. Lastly, I have added the teacher pay teacher request of $100 so I can purchase a kindergarten reading curriculum alongside digital activities to match. These curriculum go along with the Common Core books and would be tremendously helpful in practicing the gradual release and independence in reading.
