My Students

My students are eager to become successful readers. They are highly motivated with electronics. Their favorite type of books are non-fiction. These books help them learn about new places, unusual animals, intriguing cultures and accomplished individuals. Not only do they love these texts but the new vocabulary they come across can be life changing. Many of my students are reading below grade level. One of the reasons is due to availability of texts. These materials will help reach all levels of learners that I have.

My Project

These materials will allow myself to teach reading non-fiction a variety of ways. The tablets will allow them to research new topics that they might be interested in. The two subscriptions, TIME For Kids and Scholastic News, will allow students to learn in the class and take home to share. The bins will allow myself to help keep these new materials organized. The paper will allow myself to print an endless supply of online texts. Using all these tools will help raise the bar in their reading success. My students will be exposed to so many new topics. This will only help prepare them for their exciting future.
