My Students

Thinking back on learning to read I often forget the struggle of the process. My students come from various backgrounds and abilities. They have a love for books and a desire to read that is unmatched. They seek opportunities to share and have already developed such encouraging spirits this year.

My students learn in a co-taught, inclusion setting.

Many have learning disabilities, some have advanced learning, and some even have physical impairments. Their ability levels span a large range requiring many modes of instruction, so that all needs and strengths are met and utilized. Our school is considered Title 1, and expectations are set high for all learners. Regardless of the various backgrounds, students and teachers strive for excellence in all areas.

My Project

With your help my students will have access to personal CD players. Our reading block allows time for students to work through stations built for independent practice and development. One of these stations is a listening station. I love this station, because it gives students the opportunity to hear favorite books read with expression and fluency. Our current set up has students huddled around a single cd player to hear one book. They are unable to sit comfortably due to cord limitations. They work hard to decide on a book that everyone is okay listening to, but this set up is not conducive for a true listening station.

Your donation can help us open the door for new possibilities.

My students will have the opportunity to choose books of personal interests, leading to engagement in learning.They will have the opportunity to sit in various places, creating an environment where learning flourishes. These simple tools can create a world of learning that sets the stage for a bright future in reading.I want to thank you ahead of time for your consideration, as we seek the opportunity to purchase personal CD players.
