My learners are passionate and eager to learn about the world around them through personalized learning. Our classroom is designed to meet the needs of all learners through differentiated small group instruction, learning from others, technology driven, learner choice, goal setting, and assessment.
My learners are independent, who know how to self-advocate for their learning.
We work together to create and accomplish short and long-term learning goals throughout the school year. I can't express how much I love working with my students. They are simply wonderful individuals.
I am asking for a variety of materials that will enhance and support reading workshop in my classroom. The goal of my project is to continue to update our classroom library with engaging books and having the resources needed for our learner to work independently. The 14 biographies will be used to promote the reading of nonfiction text in the classroom. It will also support a biography genre study project in which learners will read biographies. They will read this biographies and create research project about their findings. The 24 scissors will help learners to be able to construct projects, cut their weekly spelling words, and be used in our learning activities that require cutting. The 36 pair of headphones will be used for reading intervention time. Learners need headphones to support this computer-based reading program. There are also many other reading activities and games that support learning that require headphones. With headphones, I am able divide my class into small groups to give instruction, while others maybe doing an intervention time or reading choice on the computer. Finally, the 18 Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Captain Underpants book will be used for independent reading options for my learners. These books are in high demand. They are always checked out in our classroom library. We need more copies and some need to be replaced.
Reading Workshop is a teaching practice that promotes a love for reading through mini-lessons, guided reading, and independent practice of reading and reading related activities.
Teaching reading becomes far more effective when you have the materials to allow students to work independently during your literacy block. These allows me to teach in small groups that are differentiated by ability. Learners then are able to receive meaningful instruction at their level. This makes school more enjoyable and productive for all our learners.
