My Students

My students are struggling readers. They have been identified as those with dyslexia characteristics although none of them have an official diagnosis. Diagnosis or not, every student learns best with direct and explicit instruction.

In addition to direct and explicit instruction, my reading intervention students need repeated practice building, writing, and reading words.

I am constantly considering new ways for them to practice as to keep them motivated and engaged in their reading progress.

My students are hard workers and give me their best effort every day​!

My Project

These materials will provide multi-sensory and tactile practice for my intervention students. The magnetic dry erase boards will be used to practice writing words after segmenting the sounds. The boards will provide a choice of writing with or without lines. The magnetic letters can be used with the magnetic dry erase boards to provide another way to manipulate words. The magic boards will provide yet another tactile and multi-sensory opportunity when writing as the students feel the movement as they write.

Not every brain learns the same way.

But every brain can learn. Having multiple ways to manipulate words will ensure​ that each student has many opportunities to improve in reading.
