I have been a middle school, special education teacher for fourteen years. Over the years, I have seen many changes in students, funding and attitude. I try my best to bring as many new experiences into my classroom so that I can "reach" as many students each day.
Many of our students come from low income, non English speaking homes from many different countries and do not have any support at home or resources to help guide them.
My goal is to gather as many new and exciting materials to help them succeed!
Many of my students are performing significantly below grade level in the areas of reading and writing. The power pen reading comprehension kits for various grade levels will help students improve their comprehension skills to eventually have them understanding grade level content. Students in my classes also struggle with reading fluency. Being able to practice their reading so that they can increase their fluency will also help them be closer to reading and understanding grade level test. The fluency card bank is a quick and easy way to help build this skill.
By having access to materials that are not time consuming and easy to use my students will find that it does not have to take hours to work to improve their reading and writing skills.
The writing materials I am requesting will help my students practice their writing so that they can gain confidence in their writing as well as practice their writing skills. I am hoping that by having story starters and writing starters that this will help not only build their confidence with writing, but also have them want to write more rather than see it as a difficult task. The daily language books are a way for my students to practice the skills they need to become better writers.
