My Students

My students come from diverse backgrounds, but the one commonality they share is the majority of them live in poverty with a 72% free and reduced-price lunch rate. Many of my students were not able to have the academic support they needed during the shutdown of public schools in 2019-2020. As a result, most of my students are behind in fundamental reading skills. It is important that students have repeated exposure and practice with phonics. Decodable readers will give my students the concentrated practice they need in phonics to become more successful and confident readers.

My Project

Decodable readers will give my students the practice they need to become proficent readers. The readers will be used in small groups to give students more individualized instruction. This small group approach using targeting specific skills will help bridge the gap that was created by lost classroom instruction due to Covid. These decodable readers will benefit readers of various reading levels as they strengthen their ability to decode text. This practice will also help strengthen my students' ability to read accurately and fluently.

In general, all students in my classroom will benefit from using grade-level decodable readers.
