My Students

love the on-line portion of our reading curriculum. Each student gets to pick what topics they are interested in. They practice their reading and writing skills in a variety of ways. Everything is personalized to the student's reading level.

Our school is an urban area school with 83% of our students' families receive public aid, living in substitute care, or qualify for free or reduced lunch prices The student population includes 52% black students, 33% white students, 12% 2 or more races, and 3% Hispanic students.

This mix of students accurately represents the makeup of our surrounding community and city. My students read below grade level. With the reading program I teach, they are finding success in reading!

My Project

We need new headphones!

The students must use headphones with microphones to record themselves while reading passages.

Their recordings are sent to me to evaluate their fluency. I use these recordings in individual conferences I have the with students. I used to have a nice classroom set of headphones, but they have worn out through the years. I am hoping that this set can last me for a few more years!

Technology is a wonderful thing!

However, we all know the feeling when technology is not working the way it is supposed to. With new headphones, my students will be able to better utilize our program.
