My Students

My school is located in a high-crime, low-income area. One hundred percent of our students qualify for the free lunch program. My school is a full inclusion school so we have students with various kinds of special needs, including social and emotional needs. Students at my school are a very diverse group and in spite of the challenges they face at home, they are very resilient.

My students have a wide range of academic skills.

Many students require extra support and practice in order to grasp key concepts, yet they are willing to work hard and persevere. My students are happy to be back in-person and are motivated learners!

My Project

These workbooks provide daily practice in the grade level skills my students need to master. These are the perfect activities to use for homework and for center activities in the classroom. I will use these workbooks as my master copy.

My students need multiple opportunities to practice the skills they are learning in class.

Most of my students are performing below grade level and have not developed the necessary skills they need in order to master grade level standards. The extra practice these books provide will help them get there.
