My Students

My students are kind and caring and above all extraordinary children. I truly believe I have been very fortunate to have such students in my class. Most of my students come from a low income community and receive free lunch and breakfast. Most students also come from household of single parents or grandparents. Even though they face many daily challenges at home they always come to school ready and eager to learn. Giving my students the resources they need is crucial.

My Project

Small group instruction is one of the focal points in teaching. Most importantly it provides an environment which is conducive to learning. During small group instruction my students bring their chairs to the reading table, which at times can be a distraction to students who are trying to concentrate to finish their seatwork. Other times they come to the carpet, our gathering spot. Being prepared, having all materials readily available and organized is a must. It is difficult to have materials at the carpet and keep all material together in one place. The product that I have selected will facilitate the students easy access to materials needed at the reading and writing center.

By donating to my project, you will not only help improve and increase students' reading comprehension and fluency, you will also help to increase their academic achievement.

In addition, students will benefit by experiencing differentiated instruction which is tailored to their specific needs. Because students in the group have common learning goals, small groups also increase understanding and further grasps new concepts. This will impact their success and propel them forward in their learning journey!
