My Students

The students at my school are so eager to learn when they walk into the doors every day. The population of my school is 100% free and reduced lunch, and we have 98% ELL students. These students are full of wonderful questions and are extremely motivated to impress their teachers. The population of our school is very hands-on community. The kids gravitate towards things they physically get to touch and move around as part of their learning.

As a teacher of such a unique population, I wish so badly that I could give these scholars everything they deserve to be in a learning environment that best suits them.

I am excited to see my students faces when they see these new gifts all for them!

My Project

These resources will help me help my students. I work with small groups of 1-6 students on improving their reading comprehension and fluency. These students are in 2nd through 8th grade. These students received a did not pass or partial pass on their MCA tests. These materials will allow my students to read grade level texts while also working on their comprehension. We will be working through the materials to better correct their levels of reading while also allowing the chance to catch up and get ahead of where we are wanting them to reach throughout the year. The materials will also bring our total peace of materials up as our school is a newer school trying to establish a strong reading core.
