Guided Reading Supplies: Help Struggling Readers Continue to Be Leaders!
My students need essential supplies for guided reading. These supplies will appeal to different learners in the classroom (visual, auditory, kinesthetic) and allow for a very hands-on approach for guided reading instruction.

Our wonderful 2nd grade ICT class is filled with a diverse group of learners. Our school is a Title I School in South Brooklyn where most of the students come from a low-income household and a diverse background. In our school, 100% of the students receive free lunch. We are diverse not only in our socio-economic status or cultural diversity but also in our learning ability. One third of our class has an Individualized Education Plan which requires me to modify the curriculum to meet their individual needs and learning style. Our classroom lacks basic supplies for our daily routine. Also, our guided reading groups do not have the supplies needed for one-to-one instruction and small group instruction.
Our curious, eager and diverse 2nd graders are always interested in new ways to learn and tools to use.
Our students overcome challenges daily in their home life. Some of our students live in shelters and temporary housing situations. Despite the hardships and disadvantages in their home life, our students persevere and show their love for being in school. Their school is more than just school - it is their favorite place to be during the day.
Guided reading is a very important part of our day where students become independent readers with the support of a teacher. However, we lack many supplies to help different learners in our classroom. These supplies will help students who are struggling readers get the best possible instruction during guided reading time. The supplies appeal to all learners - visual, auditory, kinesthetic. All supplies are for the children to use in a hands-on manner with the support of a teacher.
Students will be able to touch, see, and hear how hard they are working on blending sounds, practicing phonics and comprehending what they are reading.
Supplies like the The Hear Myself Sound Phone can help auditory learners because they help students focus on every letter sound, blending phonemes, phonics practice, oral reading and so much more. The phonics activity and the comprehension activity center will help students strength skills that they are struggling with such as comprehension skills (main idea, inference, predictions, character analysis, etc.) and phonics skills (decoding, blending, fluency, and so much more). Some of the items such as the small group easel will allow students to receive and visually see important vocabulary, strategies, and phonics work that will help them better learn. Other supplies such as highlighter tape, dry erase markers, post-its, index cards and rings will help with practicing important sight words and vocabulary words needed to succeed. This will also allow our students to take what they create in the classroom and continue to work on it at home.
