As teachers of students with disabilities in a low-income and high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with meaningful learning experiences.
The students in my school are smart, engaging, funny, eager to learn, and happen to have a difficulty reading.
My goal is to provide these dyslexic/reading delayed students with the materials that will allow them to soar and learn to love reading!
Nonfiction reading is a big part of the school curriculum. Our students need to read more nonfiction work and need it on a reading level that they are able to read.
The first step in a learning journey begins with a spark of curiosity.
Through the Scholastic News Magazine, my students will be able to learn all about and explore the current events in the world without leaving their seats. Story Works will expose my students to fascinating, important stories that ignite a sense of wonder, whether it's in nonfiction, fiction, drama, poetry, or a surprising text pairing. Dyna Math will make math meaningful with real-world connections. DynaMath is a dynamic math education package with originally reported articles that use real data to teach elementary math skills.
My students are eager to see the world and learn all about it. Unfortunately most of my students do not have the ability to do so. By providing these magazines for them, you will be helping them experience the world and expand their knowledge of it.
