My Students

My students are elementary school students at a Title I School in Florida. A majority of the students at the school are students who receive free or reduced-price lunch. Being a Title I school means that we sometimes don't receive enough funding to get the best resources. A third of my students fall in the lower percentile of our school and struggle with both reading and math. I also have some higher students who can benefit from enrichment. Lastly, I have some students who are on level who often require a little review.

My students are champions in the classroom, and they will go on to change the world around them.

They are always eager to learn, and they work hard to grasp concepts. In my class a champion is one who comes to school on time and works hard and gives their best effort each and every day. They are respectful and friendly and treat each other as family!

My Project

We are getting ready to kick off a new school year and we want to make sure that our students have the best chance at success. My students need to read Jackie Robinson books to practice reading skills using nonfiction text. They also need a calendar to keep track of where they should be in the book at all times. Lastly, they need timers as we work on building reading stamina in Daily 5. I am working to help students build great reading habits and this project will help my students do just that! Giving to this project will also help my students see that there are people out there who care about them. This will show them that education is important and help them to go on to be lifelong learners!
