I have an amazing group of students I work with. My students range from 1st to 2nd grade and are all reading below the 50th percentile. They all come from different backgrounds with 100% of them receiving free breakfast and lunch. They come excited and ready to learn different skills and strategies to help make them lifelong learners. They take pride in their efforts and are willing to challenge their minds for the sake of learning. It's so amazing to watch them grow.
These materials will make a difference in my students learning because they will have a larger variety of books to read. These books will be used for guided reading. Guided reading is a small group setting (5-6 kids in a group). In this setting, each student will have a book on their instructional level.
During guided reading, I will be able to teach students skills and strategies that are needed to become independent reader.
These skills and strategies they can then apply to their everyday reading. This will help improve their school lives because the books that I have chosen have rich texts and provide the support that they need to become lifetime readers.
