We have 26 students in our regular education classroom. Our school is in a large urban school district in Central Illinois. (Specific Demographics: Seven students receiving Special Education IEP services. Five students receiving ELL services. Four students receiving Speech/Language IEP services. Six students receiving Reading intervention. eleven students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.)
Our classroom is full of sweet, fun, and hard-working 3rd graders!
The students are in a 1:1 iPad environment. Having access to this technology makes it possible to teach and learn in new, exciting, and innovative ways. As the teacher, I am always looking for ways to engage my students and incorporate technology across all subject areas!
The "Disaster and Survival Skills Book" explores the themes of disaster and survival through 10 different genres (Narrative Nonfiction, First-Person Account, Fiction, Informational Text, Video, Drama/Historical Fiction, Map/Infographic, Debate/Opinion Writing, Interview, & Poetry). Each thrilling selection is followed by challenging reader tasks specifically designed to build key skills.
The Text Set includes engaging content to build and expand knowledge.
Through close reading and rigorous analysis activities, students are challenged to site textual evidence, synthesize ideas and make meaningful connections. The set includes a Teacher's Guide with lesson plans, skills sheets, scaffolded activities and differentiated writing prompts. Additionally, online activities and quizzes modeled on higher-level assessments help prepare students for high-stakes tests.
