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 Project

I service about 30 of the lowest readers in 4th and 5th grade. I have 10, 30 minute, groups daily. The groups have anywhere from 3-6 students in each group. They come to group excited to read and work on comprehension skills. Some of them are 2 to 3 levels below grade level standards.

Now, wouldn't it be great if they could work on some skills by accessing materials where they are at reading level wise?

These materials would allow them to take a break from books and zone in on the skills they need to focus on such as Vocabulary, Making Inferences, Grammar, Text Features, Text Structure, Figurative Language, etc.
