My Students

I teach in one of the largest counties of North Carolina. Wilkes County is very diverse and many people struggle with poverty issues. This being said, my students are eager to learn and I am dedicated to helping them achieve to great heights of learning and overcome obstacles that may get in their way of learning.

My students have started reading Readers Theater passages to help with reading fluency and comprehension.

They love the passages and have even started to write their own passages and plays. We need more resources to keep them motivated, interested, and reading.

My Project

We all know that reading is vital to a person's success in life, but sometimes it is a challenge to keep reading interesting and exciting for students. These activities will help to stimulate and pique students' interest and keep them focused while learning. Students will increase fluency through repeated practice reading scripts. This will also improve expression and inflection while reading aloud. They will be able to practice parts to increase confidence in reading. Learners will also increase comprehension skills using close reading to understand the text and characters in the stories. The benefit will be learning while having engaging fun.
