My Students

My students are an inspiring group of diverse learners and communicators. I work with students in a variety of settings including general education and self-contained classrooms. Some of the students I serve come from low-income families and experience hardships that impact their daily life at school. Each student has specific goals related to their learning. Many are working on overall comprehension of stories and expression of ideas. Learning these concepts requires more repetition with the students I see and a more diverse collection of materials. Therefore, I am in need of more materials to adequately serve their individual needs and meet their goals.

My Project

I am a speech-language pathologist within a public school. I see many students in the special education system, kindergarten through fifth grade. At this time, I do not have an adequate book selection to practice important comprehension and narrative skills. Many of my students are working on answering wh- questions, making inferences, making predictions, and retelling events about stories. These skills are difficult for them and therefore, they can become frustrated with the idea of reading. It is my goal that my students not only excel in reading but also find JOY in reading.

It is essential that these students practice these skills with books that are on their own specific, individual reading level.

My students are at various stages of their literacy journey and a variety of leveled books are required to address all of their needs. Help me provide these books to my students to help them build a solid foundation for reading!
