My Students

I work with 4th graders who are struggling in the areas of Reading. I see these students on a daily basis for 30 minutes a day. Some of my students find Reading to be somewhat difficult and boring at times.

My students love to read current events as well as investigative mysteries.

They love when I introduce a current events article or a passage where they find out something they didn't know. I want to provide for them a variety of passages in order to make them excited to read again.

My Project

I chose the 4th Grade Bundle Pack for this project because it includes a variety of reading passages for my students. It includes some nonfiction passages, high interest passages, vocabulary practice skills, and grammar/writing skills.

In a world where students are constantly on their iPhones and tablets, it is very hard to keep their attention and also find passages that are interesting to read.

This bundle includes some mystery passages that will "hook" students and as a result will motivate them to continue reading the passage. When they are interested in a topic, it opens up discussion between them which in return enables them to retain more of the information read.
