Welcome to our 4th grade classroom! Our classroom is an inclusion classroom servicing students with varying ability levels and needs, coming from a some difficult backgrounds.
We do our best to motivate our students to be the very best they can be!
A number of our students lack the resources and support at home to be successful, so we do our best to support and motivate our students in the classroom. We hope to create the great minds of the future!
There are strong associations between independent reading and reading achievement, and many researchers believe that independent reading plays a key role in the development of reading fluency (speed and ease of reading), vocabulary, background knowledge, and even spelling.
Not surprisingly, motivation also is associated with independent reading; children who are interested in and motivated to read tend to do more independent reading.
Unfortunately, children with learning disabilities in reading often do not read independently, because they tend to find reading effortful, may have trouble obtaining books at their reading level, or may have generally negative attitudes toward reading as a consequence of repeated failure.
Let's make sure all students have books to help them grow as successful readers!
