My students need a variety of phonics centers to help advance their vocabulary and word study skills to lift the level of their reading and writing work.
If education is the key to success, reading must be the lock. Think about how many times you are required to read everyday. The morning paper, street signs, directions to operate nearly everything we touch.. reading is everywhere, in every subject, everyday.
I teach second grade special education in an inclusion classroom.
My classroom, which is a representation of special education IEP students, English Language Learners, and general education students, services a wide range of children with varying academic needs. The school I have worked at for the past 4 years is an early education school (grades PK-2) that houses the 3rd largest special education program in the New York. We are located in a very urban area, and service one of the most disadvantaged neighborhoods around. Many families here are unable to provide financially to support children's education. My students are wonderful, inquisitive learners. However, many of my IEP and English Language Learners are still struggling with basic reading skills. As my students have learning disabilities, yet are still subject to the same state and national standards, we look to find alternative methods and multiple entry points to curriculum in order to meet their needs.
As a solution, I am requesting different phonics centers to help aid my students in word study work. Balanced literacy requires equal parts reading instruction with word construction and attack skills. The centers I am requesting work to build long and short vowel, blend and digraph identification, high frequency word fluency, constructing and deconstructing words by phoneme, and other activities to build spelling and vocabulary skills. These skills are vital to reading growth.
The disparity between high poverty classrooms and their suburban counterparts is transparent, and serves as a nagging reminder that the achievement gap has a whole lot more to do with dollar signs than we would like to admit.
Having the opportunity to receive a wonderful education is a right for all kids. Please, please, please do your part help provide resources to my amazing children who need them!
