My Students

My classes serve students with a range of disabilities, including intellectual disabilities, emotional disturbance, autism spectrum disorder, vision impaired, and specific learning disabilities. The typical student in my class reads at a third-grade level, and many struggle with basic phonics and number sense.

My students are the best!

They are in the sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. They want to learn and love to learn about new concepts and ideas.

They attend a rural middle school in South Carolina. Our school is a Title I school, and all of the children receive free lunches. The majority of the children from our school come from lower-income families.

My Project

The books, Frindle and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will be used during English Language Arts to read together as a group. I also have CD's of the books that we can also use with the book if they are reading individually.

The students will use the books to study and practice main idea, character traits and reading comprehension.

My students do not read a lot because of their various disabilities and when they do read, the material is so low that it seems "babyish" to them. They want to read something in which they are interested or not such a low level.
