My Students

My students have varying abilities and disabilities. I am a Special Education teacher. I teach Grades K-2 Learning Support English and Reading. Some of my students have ADHD, Autism, Learning Disabilities, Speech and Language deficits, and social skills deficits. They are so amazing and sweet. Many have been through so much and are living in unique family situations and have overcome many hardships. My school is considered a low income school. I pay for a lot myself to make my classroom a happy home away from home.

My Project

The materials I am requesting will make a huge difference in the life of my students. They are in need of intervention in the areas of Oral Reading Fluency, Spelling, Writing, and Vocabulary. With these materials, my students will make tremendous progress and enhance their reading skills. I am noticing in my classroom that more and more students are in need of materials that address dyslexia. The Orton Gillingham resource that I am requesting could help me to meet this need for my students.

“Show me a family of readers, and I will show you the people who move the world.”

― Napoleon Bonaparte

The Inspired Thinkers magnetic letters, the Phonics-Powered Prevention and Intervention, Orton-Gillingham Reading and Spelling materials and the CVC Toolbox Educational game will all help to reach the many learning styles of my students. With the right materials, we can move mountains in my classroom and train up some incredible readers. I am so thankful for your time and consideration! My students thank you, too! Reading rocks!
