Can You See What I See?

My students need an ELMO visual presenter.

Have you or anyone you know ever had trouble visualizing material or concepts? What about having a learning disability? The 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students in my remedial English Language Arts classroom can answer yes to both of these questions.

My students all have one thing in common - They want to succeed!!! None of them passed the iLEAP or LEAP tests last year. They all struggle with comprehension skills and are ready and willing to try different strategies in order to improve. These students have some type of learning disability whether it is visual-motor processing, dyslexia, attention disorder, or language processing. They give up their PE time two days per week in order to better prepare themselves for the standardized test this year.

In my classroom, I use a variety of strategies to reach the students. These strategies are visual, motor, tactile,and/or kinesthetic. By using an Elmo visual presenter, I could show the students specific strategies to use as we read a selection. They get frustrated when I work on the whiteboard because they can only see what I write and not how I work.

After teaching for 20 years and having 2 Learning disabled children of my own, I have finally been given the best job in my profession - coaching students that are in need of and want to succeed in Reading. My students aren't very successful in the regular classrooms and it is very heartbreaking to see them struggle. By funding my project, you will be able to tell your colleagues that you have made it possible to help make a difference in the life of a literacy struggling student.
