Help me give my students a place for small group instruction. These items would make the focus of lessons for struggling students much more relaxed. It will also help with expressive language and comprehension.
My students are from a small Native village in Alaska. Our village is on the Iditarod Trail, Grayling, Alaska. They are kind-hearted children that have to overcome a great deal to get a high school diploma.
LindaMood-Bell programs assist students in reading comprehension by using imagery to create pictures from words they are reading.
It is a step-by-step method that has been proven to increase comprehension especially with students who are not a grade level in reading.
This project would help my students in so many ways. They would be able to understand written and oral directions. Their expressive language would improve so that they could accurately state what they want or mean.
These materials would help struggling children not feel so open to all the students in the classroom. When they respond to questions, they will feel more comfortable with their answers. Learning outcomes would be easier achieved.
An open classroom makes some students reticent to answer questions.
Having a little space for small groups could be used in many different ways. Visualizing what they are trying to say with imagery helps promote comprehension. The table and the color of the chairs would make it a "special" place where the students would want to go and feel safe in their replies without being teased.
