I teach and inspire 75 great 6th grade minds at a low-income school. For the majority of my students, English is their second language.
Our voice is our power! Help us develop strong voices that can be heard and greatness will follow.
I am focusing on fluency. Fluency is a key element in public speaking and reading comprehension. I am helping our future become more confident and inspiring them to share their ideas. Many times these children lack self-esteem because of their inability to read fluently. However by helping them develop their fluency they will become confident which will lead to a higher level of participation and engagement.
I believe that if the students are able to listen to themselves, they will be able to pinpoint words that they have a difficulty with and make the corrections. Many times a teacher simply making them aware is not enough...with the voice recorders they will be able to listen to themselves. I also believe that this is an engaging way to help them build fluency in various activities. I plan to have them record poems, "radio commercials" and stories that can be shared with the lower grades. Help our students become confident through the use of voice recorders.
If we are able to help these children express themselves by gaining reading comprehension through a voice recorder, we are helping their self-esteem and love of learning. I believe that our voice is a powerful tool, and by encouraging our students to practice reading aloud they gain confidence and a stronger voice that will lead to confidence and greatness!
