My Students

I need your help! I want to close the achievement gap within my classroom. Most of my 4th and 5th graders are reading below grade level. The majority of the students are reading at a first through third grade level.

I teach Language Arts to approximately sixty fourth and fifth graders.

Most of the students speak English as a second language and are the first generation from their families attending American schools. Over half of my students are not grade level proficient and struggle in school. I teach at a title one school, so most of the students receive free or reduced lunch. Many of the parents are working two jobs to make ends meet, or have been laid off of work due to several businesses cutting back.

My Project

Being that most of the students are performing below grade level for language arts, most of the materials that I have is far too difficult for them. I have students ranging from emerging probable readers on up to fifth grade. While I am still required to teach grade level standards, I can close the achievement gap by providing intervention instruction with material that they are able to read. The resources that I requested will allow the students to be more successful with reading because they will comprehend the material at a higher level which in turn will enable the students to become more successful with more difficult material with exposure, practice, and time.

Having the various leveled interactive reading materials and fluency skill cards will impact the students learning.

First and foremost, the children will be able to comprehend the material because it is on their reading level. The reading strategy charts will provide them with the necessary skills to comprehend text they do not understand. The students will be highly engaged, and find themselves making huge gains with their reading achievement. Please help me close the achievement gap.
