My Students

I work in a Title I middle school in the Texas Hill Country. In my classroom, I have students that have reading levels that vary from kinder to fifth grade in one room. In addition to the different reading levels, my students all have different special education identifiers that help guide my planning process based on their individual needs. My students biggest struggle is not having enough supplies!

When working on my lessons, I think about how I am going to get my students to grow as learners and how I am going to get them engaged and invested in their learning.

My students are eager to learn and participate. They have shown me they are ready to meet their personal goals this year to increase their reading skills.

My Project

I work with students who are struggling readers, who have reading disabilities, and who are in a Title 1 district.

It is always a challenge to get middle schoolers who have not caught the "reading bug" engaged in reading, having high interest texts will help engage these students to instill a love (or at least a slightly higher interest) in reading!

The topics in these books involved foster care, dyslexia, low income families, and many other relatable topics for my students. I have also included headphones for my students to listen to audiobooks on Learning Ally and Epic to hopefully increase their reading time.

With these new mentor and reading circle texts, I hope to find a text that reaches my students and encourages them to read more when they finish it. To seek out more books that they will enjoy and to finally have the adventures I have daily while reading.
