My students are in 6th-8th grade. I am a special education English teacher. A lot of my students are far below grade level in their reading abilities. My students are creative, thoughtful, respectful, and hard workers. My students try their best on most activities. I feel that I incorporate many hands on activities and really try to get my students excited to learn. Most of all, I am trying to get them excited about reading. My school's motto is that we like to see all students as: respectful, thoughtful, scholars, and responsible. I'd like to think that my students fit under these categories.
I have worked with some of the same students for a couple years, and it has truly been a pleasure working with them, getting to know them, and seeing them grow.
Since I teach special education, many of my students are far below reading at grade level. My students are reluctant readers. I feel that if I created a comfortable area for reading, which includes high engaging books and flexible seating they will want to read more.
The books that I have chosen on my wish list are a little below grade level, which gives my students access to read books at their level.
Many of my students have a difficult time sitting in a traditional chair. I feel that they will enjoy these chairs. I want to make reading exciting for my students.
I plan on using the flexible seating chairs in my classroom, so the students have a new place to sit and enjoy reading. The books that I have chose are high interest and engaging books that I feel my students will enjoy reading.
