My Students

My students come from diverse backgrounds. Many of them are homeless and have unstable family situations. School is a place of consistency and love. My challenge is keeping my students engaged in books. I need colorful exciting books for them to fall in love with!

My school is a Title I school.

We have over 90% of our students on free and reduced price lunch. We are also a low performing school on standardized tests. My students are on many different reading levels. I have several 2nd graders reading at a kindergarten level. We have many severe obstacles to overcome at my school. However, it is filled with love and compassion and some of the hardest working teachers I have ever had the honor to work with. We all just want to see our children succeed and overcome the hardships they are experiencing as children.

My Project

My students will use the books to work in partners to practice the standards with. I teach the standard at a higher level with our district provided curriculum. However, I need the materials for their reading levels so that they can feel successful and I will be able to bridge the gap in their learning. They will learn about the use of text features, main topic and key details, author's purpose, and biographies.

My students really enjoy reading books and sharing their learning with each other.

These materials will help me to continue their learning and make them feel successful in school. With the expectations so high for our students I must create a fun learning environment with vivid interesting books!
