I am lucky enough to work with kindergarten through 3rd grade students who struggle with reading. These students work hard everyday in small groups to fill in the gaps in their learning. Determination, endurance, and perservance are just some of the traits that describe them when it comes to learning the art of reading. This task is not easy for them.
Nothing makes me happier than when one of my students has success.
It is music to my ears to hear a student who can finally sound out /d/ /o/ /g/ and puts the sounds together into an acutal word and then skips out of my room exclaiming, "I can read!"
As a result, I am truly inspired by my students everyday as their determination to become better readers gives me motivation to be at my very best.
My students struggle with reading activities in their regular classroom and come to me for intervention everyday. These students have difficulty with tasks that can be relatively easy for their peers.
I feel that my job is not only to fill in the gaps in their learning, but also to make my lessons hands-on as well as engaging.
To reinforce instruction I like to provide games and activities to help my students stay motivated and engaged in learning. Many of my students also have difficulties focusing and these activites help keep them on-task and motivated to learn every day. Their is nothing better than kids excited about learning!
