My students come from a large and diverse K through 8 high poverty school in a high crime area of Philadelphia, which receives Title I funding. Most of my students are from low-income families. My students live in a variety of different living situations including homelessness. A full 100% of my students are eligible for free breakfast and lunch. They are future scientists, authors, engineers, artists, and computer programmers.
My incredible third and fourth-grade students are excited about learning and want to excel in school.
Many of my English Language Learners struggle with daily learning. They come from diverse backgrounds with a variety of needs. Some have physical needs while others have autism, ADD, or ADHD. Still, others face emotional challenges, but all of the children have the same desire to learn.
These nonfiction books and sight words will help all of my students become fluent readers. So many of my students don't have access to books on their reading level and having a complete library on each child's level will allow them the freedom to read a variety of high interest stories. The jumbo people shapes will allow my students to write about different story characters.
My students love to read, but they need more nonfiction leveled books in their classroom library.
The sight word flash cards will help my students that are just learning to put sounds together build words. This project will help all of my students build and strengthen their literacy skills.
