My Students

We have 100% free lunch and many of the students live in shelters, and face many challenges on a daily basis. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention.

Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day.I am constantly looking for ways to inspire and build a love of learning in all my students.

My Project

Having the opportunity to listen to rich literature is vital when learning to read, write and speak. Our students will benefit from having a listening center where they can listen to stories to expand their vocabulary and foster a love for reading. With the portable CD player and the read-along books, my children will learn to love to read.

When provided with a well-rounded education including visual, auditory and tactile opportunities, my students will continue to grow and achieve success.

This project will give my students access to the curriculum while engaging them in auditory learning.

Their comprehension levels will increase because seeing, hearing, and interaction with the book will help to build skills in literacy and language.
