My Students

My school is a high need school. 85% of our students are English learners. We have a dual language program where some of our students are learning to be literate in English and Spanish at the same time. We have a lot of needs at our site, both behaviorally, emotionally, and academically.

I am the resource teacher at this school where my responsibilities include planning with teachers, delivering professional development, co-teaching, modeling, and observing lessons, and pushing in to classrooms to provide extra academic support for the students who need it.

We have emergent readers in every grade level, even 5th grade, and we do not have the resources, books, to teach them well. We are in desperate need for low reading level books to use for guided reading and small group reading lessons.

My Project

We have students in all grade levels, transitional kindergarten through fifth grade, who are struggling with learning to read. There are students in upper grades who are reading at a kindergarten level, and we don't have the books to teach them with. We are poised and ready to teach these students, we know how, we have the right mindset, we have the time in the day....now all we need is the books. In these upper grade levels, we don't have the lower level books needed to teach these students. We are scraping the internet to find things, but what we find is not engaging, too babyish, and most of the time is a one pager without picture support. Please help us by donating materials we desperately need to teach these students how to read, before they reach middle school.
