My Students

I have an amazing set of reading intervention students in grades kindergarten through fifth. I teach at a very diverse school in MN. My school is classified as a high-poverty school with many students on the free or reduced-price lunch program.

My students have a wide variety of abilities, interests, and challenges.

From learning support students to English language learners, I am here to teach them all and give them the best education possible that meets their unique needs! My school rocks!

My Project

Help! We have a mess with our manipulatives. I have magnetic letters, games flashcards and more. All of these manipulatives are used daily in my reading intervention small groups. I need them accessible, but organized. I am asking for a rolling storage cart to store and organize these valuable tools. I want my students to have access to the tools they need to help them learn to read.

Reading intervention group looks much different than classroom reading group.

Becuase of the unique needs of my students, I need to have many tools ready and waiting for the students when needed.

Thank you for considering my project.
