My Students

My students had their whole world change in a day when it was announced that schools would be closed. They went from having a routine, with two meals a day, to staying home and learning.

My students to gve their best everyday regardless of their situation and learning at home has not changed that.

They still work at being the best they each can be and I want to support them in any way that I can.

My Project

My students come from homes where there often do not have access to books, and especially not books at their level. Right now the libraries are even closed so they cannot even get books from the library.

These PowerPen Cards will allow my students to continue to build their reading skills even when they are not at school and do not have someone to help them (since the cards are self-checking).

I know that my students would love to get these activities. I love that I would be able to know that they are working on their reading at their level.
