Help Us Compare and Contrast in Reading!

My students need different reading center activities, like a What's the Point? Comparing Text center, to compare and contrast similar texts.

My Students

My students are hard-working, fun-loving, and want to succeed. By the end of third grade, I want my students to be able to comprehend and then compare similar texts. This will be a skill students will use for the rest of their lives.

My students are fun-loving, hard-working students who have many labels thrown at them.

Many are ELL, many are special education, and most qualify for free or reduced priced lunch. Beyond these odds, my students work hard to achieve a level one status, and are fabulous human beings. These students are excited to learn, and absolutely love reading, especially when they get to work with partners.

My Project

My students need different reading center activities, like a What's the Point? Comparing Text center, to compare and contrast similar texts. These resources will be incorporated into my literacy centers during our daily intervention block. This time during our day is used to target specific student needs and help support their strengths. I am often teaching a small group as well as a literacy support teacher leaving a small group of students working independently. I have selected literacy centers that focus on being able to compare and contrast two different topics on similar topics. I have specifically ordered both third grade and second grade levels to support my students' specific needs. Many of my students are still reading below grade level and I want them to have a way to access the information and comprehension strategies, without the frustrations of not being able to read the text. One of the pushes from Common Core is the ability to comprehend and synthesize across multiple texts. These materials will help students make strides in building their abilities to do so.

With your donation, you will provide students a chance to continue improving their literacy skills and reading comprehension strategies.

As we all know, having strong reading, writing, and vocabulary skills are central to success in our world and by continually providing opportunities in different formats will give each and every one of my students a chance to succeed.
