My Students

My colleagues and I teach second and third grade students in an urban school district. Our students are the future leaders of our school and our community. Right now, they are not the biggest kids in the building, but not the smallest. They are right in the middle. Sometimes being in the middle is seen as a disadvantage, but our students have the advantage, they have the mentors!

The students in second and third grade are enthusiastic to read with a mentor.

Each week they look forward to spending two, thirty minute sessions with a mentor that gives them individualized time to practice learning Fry words and phrases. Students also read from leveled readers to increase their fluency levels. We are very thankful to have such great community partners who are committed to supporting literacy in our school.

My Project

Our goal is to become the best readers we can be, and we have plenty of help. We are blessed with some great community partners. The Woodcroft-Eisenhower Reading Mentors have given us many hours of their time and knowledge. The Genesee County Medical Society Alliance has donated hundreds of books for us to read.

Crates will help keep us organized so we can spend more time reading and less time finding books.

This is the second year of the partnership with our mentors and what we found was the books became burdensome and unorganized. Having the crates will allow each of us to have easy access to our own set of books so that we can just grab and go when our mentor arrives. With our crate stocked and organized we can spend more time reading books with our mentor.

Finally, our four amazing teachers have written Individualized Reading Intervention Plans for those of us currently below grade level in reading. This is done in accordance with the states Third Grade Retention Law to ensure that we are all reading at grade level by the time we leave third grade. What we need is forty manageable size wooden crates with handles for easy storage and handling of all our great reading material. Please become another one of our amazing partners, donate!
