My Students

My literacy intervention students are learning phonemic awareness, phonics, decoding, and comprehension strategies to help them become confident readers and writers! They work so hard to become proficient readers! Literacy intervention is exciting with flexible seating, interesting books and quality reading materials! My literacy intervention students become passionate about what they read and curious about the world! We would greatly benefit from new reading materials and beanbags to create our future Literacy Lounge! Thank you!

My Project

My literacy intervention students need some new reading materials and beanbags to create our Literacy Lounge! Students will love reading new books and Time for Kids in our cozy classroom! My students enjoy taking a break from their traditional classroom desks and coming to literacy intervention with flexible seating options! They enjoy taking turns on our wobble chairs and love reading on the floor with pillows and beanbags. Our beanbags were very worn out after last year so I am excited to have two new chairs!

I am passionate about creating a safe and nurturing learning environment that encourages students to try their best and maintain a growth mindset!
