My students are a prime example of the melting pot that is our country, as they represent over 30 different countries in my three classes! Just like the great variety in our backgrounds, my students come to 6th grade with a great variety in their ability to read independently. Some of my students are reading by themselves at an 8th grade level while others struggle through 3rd grade passages.
My students are enthusiastic and passionate about their learning and crave the opportunity to discover new things for themselves.
I am requesting several new and exciting style games for my classroom. My hope is to acquire these materials to assist in engaging my students as they build their reading skills.
The games and literacy centers are designed using research based practices, but are also made to promote fun while my students learn.
Since there are a plethora of reading abilities in any given classroom at any time, I am requesting varying levels too. This will help maximize the number of students I am able serve with these games. I also requested a variety of language journals to help some of my ESL students who, while several years below grade level, still need consistent instruction at their ability level to progress and build their confidence.
