My Students

My students are eager to become readers and to get to become experts using a brand new reading curriculum this year.

My students are first graders who come from diverse backgrounds.

There are 5 different languages spoken by students in my classroom. There are students who come to me already reading chapter books, and those who are just learning to read letter sounds. Luckily, they are all coming into a classroom where, regardless of their current level, they will all be supported on their journey to become better readers and thinkers.

My Project

To start, it's important to understand that this is the first time in a decade that my school has used a reading curriculum where we do not teach whole group reading by level. This makes it essential that students have access to materials that are at their individual levels. Our new curriculum has an abundance of online resources for students of all levels, but I only have two student computers in my classroom. I want more of my students to have access to the leveled e-readers that are available through our new reading program so that each child has access to texts that will be right for him/her to grow as a reader. Having two iPads will double the number of students who have access to diverse leveled texts at a time. I will also make them available for use during math independent work for students who need extra support or a challenge through access to the online resources available for our math curriculum.

This project will improve my classroom by allowing students to have better access to an abundance of curriculum resources in both reading and math that are appropriate to their individual needs.

It will change their lives for the better by challenging students who need enriching texts and by supporting students who need resources that are not available in a physical form in the classroom. It will also help to prepare students for a world that is increasingly dependent on technology.
