Ms. Henderson from Alton IL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students leveled reading materials and flexible floor seating to collaborate in comfort.
I teach 6th grade special education language arts. I have classes of students at varying levels in their reading development. My students learn individually, in small groups, and in the full classroom setting. They learn through discussion, writing, and hands-on.
My students are inquisitive and love to share information that they read with each other.
They are most engaged in their work when they are interacting with texts at their independent or instructional levels. The students are motivated to improve their reading and set independent reading goals. Throughout the year, they monitor their progress toward achieving those goals. The students cheer each other on and celebrate when they reach a personal record.
My students are eager to learn about the world around them. The Scholastic News articles provided differentiation to help students experience success at the appropriate reading level. Some of the previous magazines taught students about volcanoes, children overcoming adversity, showing kindness, and leadership.
With access to these magazines the students are exposed to diverse news stories from around the world while learning the skills and strategies that are necessary to become strong readers.
Students start the year working as a whole group on the magazines, then over time, they are able to complete the tasks either in small group or independently.
My students often have a hard time sitting still and focusing on their reading. The introduction of flexible seating in the classroom has allowed students choice and movement while they work. Students have demonstrated responsibility when they have the ability to choose where to work. The rug and pillows would add to the limited flexible seating choices that we are currently using.
