Mrs. Rueff from Roanoke VA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

I Can Take It Home?

My students need reading materials to use at home that are not just worksheets! Parents are always asking what they can do to help with a struggling reader at home. How about a game?

My Students

My amazing students are diverse at-risk readers in an urban school. Everyday in small groups of no more than 6 students we practice with fiction and non-fiction. We work on general comprehension and word work but also drill down to specific skills they need the most reenforcement in based on test results. Whether we are working to pass a Reading test or researching a Science topic to build our background knowledge, students must have reading skills to navigate the present and future reading challenges. Of course when students are at school we all love reading, but that love must extend home.

My Project

Students can use these games and materials alone or with someone: be it a sibling, parent, after school program tutor, or grandparent. Parents who constantly ask for more materials for their struggling reader don’t have to do yet another worksheet! These materials are easy to manage because of my small group schedule and even the classroom teacher doesn’t have to worry about a thing. The best part is that if students have no homework or want something else to do, these are available all week to ‘play’ with and there’s enough variety to have students trade in for a new activity every week.
