My Students

Our class is comprised of students from all different backgrounds. They all have one goal in mind; they want to grow as much as they can this year in reading and writing!

We serve students in Special Education and RTI Tiers 2 to 3.

Many of the students served under Special Education have a learning disability in reading, and more than half of the students are from a low socioeconomic background. Typically students shy away from school work but not these students.

All of the "labels" placed on the students do not hinder them. The labels but make them strive harder each day to achieve more than they did the day before, especially when it comes to reading and writing. Our classroom is filled with avid and reluctant readers and writers, but they are all striving to achieve success each school day.

My Project

Our classroom library is lacking in texts that are both at the students' reading levels and engaging. The students need more interesting texts to help expand their love for reading. After a lot of research and student input, we compiled a list of the best books to add to our classroom library for novel units. Authors such as Roald Dahl and Judy Blume topped their lists.

These new books are not only at the levels we need to help us become better readers, but they are also high interest texts.

This means we will be more eager to read throughout the year and share our love of reading with others. We can have more in depth conversations on these new books during discussion time and dig deeper into our inferential comprehension questions.
