Literacy Activities to Close Learning Gaps
My students need language practice journals, word family flip books, and tricky words and phrases teaching cards to enhance their reading skills.
I teach at a Title I school where more than 80% of students are economically needy. The majority of my students have free or reduced-price lunch. Nearly 70% of the students at my school come from a home where English is not the predominant language. Recently, my students were affected by Hurricane Irma and many have sustained damage to their homes and other financial hardships.
Despite all of my students' obstacles, they come to school excited to learn.
Since my students aren't always able to get the support that they need at home, I try to do everything I can to ensure that my students are getting the best education possible while they are with me.
Many of my students are not performing at a third grade level in English Language Arts. The materials I am asking for would help close the learning gaps and bring my students closer to where they need to be performing in reading. The language journals would give students a daily review of critical components of the third grade English Language Arts 3rd grade standards. The word family cards would help my students who are underperforming in phonics. I have several students who are performing two grade levels behind in phonics and these flip books could help my kids make connections and remember word patterns. Finally, the tricky word cards can help my students increase their vocabulary skills and learn about literal and non-literal language.
