My students need reading resources such as leveled readers, reading games, comprehension, and math practice.
Second graders reading at Kindergarten and First Grade levels need to be provided with fun, engaging activities. The best way to counteract deficient reading skills is early intervention. The sooner my students acquire basic reading skills, the more equipped they will be to continue their education.
My special education second grade students come from a variety of backgrounds.
There are varying abilities and disabilities including students with autism, aspergers, spina bifida, ADHD, and learning disabilities. Some students are still learning vowel sounds, others are reading at almost a 2nd grade level. But, even my almost on-level students lack comprehension and fluency skills. My students need fun, motivating activities so they can learn. They need multiple ways to access reading. Hands-on learning games as well as fun reading passages will help them. Additionally, I am requesting some math resources as those are also skills in which they need more help.
High interest books, reading games, and eBook resources will help my students achieve better reading comprehension and improving their reading ability. My students are at least one grade level below in reading skills and these materials will provide high-interest and engaging exercises that will encourage them to read. Reading Recovery leveled readers will provide choice for students when practicing reading. eBook materials, eBook games, and eBook teacher resources will provide necessary teacher resources to target students' skills so I can help improve their reading abilities.
My project should be supported because my heart breaks every time I hear my students say, "I can't read." They can read!
They can't read as well as other kids their age, therefore, my students think they are a failure. I want to help my students reach grade level goals in reading and the materials I'm requesting in this project will help me do that.
