My Students

I teach foundational reading skills, in my intervention lab, to students scoring below proficiency in literacy. I service 100 students throughout every day, ranging from kinder to fifth grade, in a small group setting. My students are eager, enthusiastic, second language learners, from a low economic neighborhood. Many struggle with visual or auditory processing, and are easily distracted. My students are excited every day to come to my lab, to receive specialized attention and specifically targeted instruction.

My reading lab provides a small group environment, with many visual supports and hands on materials that they need in order to stay engaged and grasp concepts effectively.

My Project

These wonderful phonics activities will give my students in my reading lab a new, interactive way of experiencing all different kinds of phonics skills.

Phonics needs repetition and students need motivation and excitement to want to retain phonics rules.

These specific games will give my students just that type of enthusiasm to want to learn to read. The Touch and Read series gives the kinesthetic learners a tool to connect decoding skills with memory.

These hands on activities provide a way for my students to engage in the conditioning of reading without feeling like it's tedious. They keep the magic of reading alive!
