My Students

My students are special because they want to learn and have opportunities just like students in more affluent areas.

Some students need additional assistance to progress towards reading at grade level, while other students will be able to excel beyond grade level.

I am inspired to teach and these students are definitely inspired to learn. Reading is the key to all learning. Once you can read well, you will excel in other subject areas.

My students are interested in learning more about all types of things such as future occupations and space exploration.

My Project

We need sight word readers, sound alike word game, book rings, alphabet dice and the book There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly on CD. These materials will make a difference to my students because they will be engaged in fun learning activities. They will interact with other students and build strong literacy skills through reading games.

Partner practice is very rewarding for students in this age group.

These materials will encourage students to share learning with other students and create their own stories. Students will use the book rings to create imaginative stories to support their literacy skills. Students will feel valued and will understand that their education is important. Students in Kindergarten and first grade will have the opportunity to practice sight word skills while reading interesting books. This practice will build their confidence in reading.
