Our school is located in Staten Island, NY. It is a Title 1 elementary school. It has a large minority student population from predominantly low-income families. Our students face the challenges of poverty, high crime rates, adult illiteracy, transience and single parent families. Low literacy achievement has predominated in our environment. As part of the reading and writing curriculum our school is asking teachers to set up literacy centers that follow the theory of Blooms Taxonomy. This theory allows for higher order thinking. By creating literacy centers and activities that follow this questioning students will progress in their reading, thinking and writing skills that they will carry into their every day lives. The activities will be engaging, hands-on and individualized allowing for all to participate and succeed. Lakeshore Learning has a set of five independent learning centers, with activities that students can explore on their own, helping them to identify and spell sight-words, learn vowel combinations, build words, construct complete sentences using parts of speech, and create paragraphs using topic, support and conclusion sentences. Please help us get this underway in our classroom.
