My Students

My classroom scholars consist of 25 amazing students from very diverse backgrounds. Our school works diligently to provide a culture of inclusiveness to each of our students. We let every child know that exposure opens up a new world of possibilities.

My group of scholars come to school excited about how listening and reading can take them to places they have never known.

Many of my students have challenges and school for them school is a safe place; whereas others have opportunities some can only dream of, but together they are a family.

My Project

In our school we have lots of technology; however we are lacking accessories needed to actually use the technology. The headphones will allow us this ability. The students will be able to use our reading center to get the reading skills needed to become lifelong readers. Being able to use the listening center will effectively show students how the words in a book can come alive and take them to places they can only imagine. This will help improve students vocabulary and listening skills.

If the project is funded students will be able to listen to audio books and use I-pads during center rotations.

In my second grade class most of my scholars don't have access to books or technology at home. Some scholars have not been read to at all. With this project they will get the opportunity to be exposed to many different books multiple times throughout the school year. Listening to audio books and other literacy websites this will help teach critical listening skills, introduces new genres, and creates the love of reading to students on and above their level.
