My Students

This year I will be working with eager to learn, 5-10 year olds in a remediation/intervention setting. Our school is located in an area where more than three-quarters of our students come from low-income households and often have difficult including educational materials into their daily routines. Despite the hardships that many students face, these children enter my classroom every day with smile on their faces and pockets full of questions.

My students are curious, full of wonder, enthusiastic, creative, and are always ready to explore the world around them.

They find joy in the smallest things, such as reading a new book, opening a new box of crayons and using markers to write on the board. They "light up" each time they learn a new letter, write a new word or identify snap words in their books. They see school as a great adventure where they can share, investigate, experiment, and learn.

My Project

My students spend a majority of their day in small groups, where they receive intensive, explicit instruction. Because they are working below level in many different areas, individual supports for each student must be created to meet their learning needs. These needs range from letter and sound identification to reading fluency to comprehension and vocabulary.

This donation will not only allow me reach the individual reading needs of each student, but also provide my students with the opportunity to use their new skills to explore other subjects, such as science and math.

With the use of technology, such as these Amazon Fire Tablets, students can review the skills that they are learning during group instruction. These tablets be used to focus on the specific need of each student, breaking down our small group lessons into smaller, more precise instruction, while I move to each students working one-on-one. Students will also be able to take these new reading skills to learn more about science, social studies and math, as well as increase their vocabulary, as they explore and read new books.
