My Students

I teach third grade at a diverse, Title I school in southwest Florida. Our students come from numerous cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. My students speak English, Spanish, Russian, Ukrainian, and Chinese! Through lots of hard work, our school continues to help our students succeed.

We are currently off school (like most of the country) due to COVID-19 and students are working online.

My district had to supply laptops and internet for many families so they could be successful with distance learning. Many companies have been providing free trials of their products during this time and I have found some to be very useful!

My Project

During remote learning, I have been using two programs from Learning A to Z with my students. Raz-Kids provides a library of differentiated books at 29 levels of difficulty students use to practice reading in school, at home, or on the go. Headsprout is a reading program that takes students on a digital journey to become better readers, designed to adapt to each student's specific needs and learning pace, and has received favorable independent reviews for its effectiveness in a variety of classroom environments.

Both of these programs have been excellent and I would like to continue to use them in my classroom next year.

Raz-kids would provide my students with lots of additional books to read on their level, and Headsprout would be really useful as a reading intervention.

Thanks for supporting my future students as readers!
