My Students

For some of my students, reading has been a lifelong struggle that at times can make them reluctant readers.

I teach a combination 7th and 8th grade small group English Language Arts class to students with mild and moderate learning disabilities.

The reading levels of my students vary widely, from about a Kindergarten level to 6th grade level, which is why this set of books, with varying levels of text, would be perfect for the small group centers in my classroom. My students take pride in being successful and it is really important to give them opportunities to build their confidence.

My Project

My students need the Toon Into Reading Comics Genre Study Set. With this set of books, I will be able to divide my students into leveled groups for reading and literacy activities. My students will be able to access engaging text at their levels which will help motivate them to work to get to the next level so that they can read the more challenging books in the curriculum.

I have a "potpourri" of materials I have inherited from other teachers including incomplete sets and pieces of curriculum.

It is difficult to purchase curriculum at the academic level of my students as the school provides grade level materials. Having a classroom set of leveled books to use during literacy centers will help streamline the classroom reading curriculum and, in turn, help my students progress in their ability to read at higher levels.
