My Students

I am a reading intervention teacher who meets with around sixty students (first-eighth) each day on a rotating basis. My students are struggling readers who are reading below grade level. In my class, it is not rare for students to grow in leaps and bounds, increasing their reading level by two or even three grade levels. Some come in with a distaste for reading but come out loving reading as they become more confident in their reading ability.

They push themselves, eager to learn, improve and excel each time they enter my room.

During my lunch hour, they would knock at my door, asking to be let in so that they can practice their reading. They truly want to excel as students and readers.

My Project

Dr. Seuss' books are a classic for so many reasons. For my low readers who are still learning at a phonological stage, they are able to learn about rhymes through a fun story with colorful and amazing illustrations. For my more advanced readers that are still struggling at their grade level, Dr. Seuss is at a perfect reading material. It is not so far out of reach like a chapter book, and yet it has the depth that a chapter book might have.

A book such as "The Sneetches" is a great starter to talk about prejudice and racism and discrimination in our history.

For my middle grade students, a book like "Oh the Places You'll Go" can start conversations about their coming life as high schoolers, their expectations, life goals, stumbling blocks, and their journey. I want to use these Dr. Seuss' books as read aloud to my students, from grades 1-7. I want my younger students to just enjoy listening to a well written story and hear the rhymes in each page and enjoy the illustrations. For my older students, I want us to talk, discuss, and learn from these books.
