My class is comprised fifth graders, who are diverse and have to overcome numerous difficulties; poverty and language being the main obstacles.
None the less, my students come to school every day with a smile on their face, eager to learn.
That is why it is important to me to create a classroom where my students feel safe and welcome. I also strive to be able to create the best environment conducive to learning. In order to do this the financial burden of purchasing classroom supplies falls on myself. With a lack of resources, I am unable to buy all of the supplies that I need in order for the students to become successful learners.
Reading is a lifelong skill that must be nurtured and developed at an early age. However, not all of my students have the opportunity or resources to establish themselves as strong readers.
We are currently using Teachers College Reading Workshop in my classroom, however, it is not meeting the needs of my students.
I would like to give my all of my students an opportunity to learn about new worlds and adventures that they could come across when reading a book. In order to open these doors to my students I make sure that they are able to read and understand the deeper meaning of a book. These books will be used to motivate and strengthen a reader's skill and love for reading.
