We have 23 students in our integrated classroom. Each and every student has their own needs and we are there to provide their differentiated instruction. Not only do we spend time on third grade academics during the school day, we also work with students to support them with social and emotional growth and becoming a better person in their community. Our students interact with their peers and teachers throughout the entire school day. We see our classroom as a home for all 23 students and the teachers who live there!
These materials will be used in small groups during our literacy block and when students are working in their literacy centers independently.
In our classroom, we try to allow students to be as hands on as possible with their materials.
Throughout the year, we have determined that our kids learn best this way and stay engaged longer. These kits come with reading materials that are leveled I-Q, which is where almost all of our students' reading levels are. The complete set will support students with: main ideas, key details, comparing and contrasting, making inferences, author's purpose, point of view, text features and character traits. These are skills our kids will see throughout their educational career.
Everyday, our kids spend time working in literacy centers where they engage with reading material and activities that support skills we have taught in small group. We are always looking for new materials that are colorful, have pictures and catch/keep their attention. Not only do these kits possess that, but they also align with the standards students are expected to master in the third grade.
