My Students

My students regularly deal with trauma in many forms: poverty, homelessness, hunger, abuse, imprisonment of family members, etc. Their young minds often find it difficult to concentrate on their studies for any length of time.

All of my students qualify for free and reduced-price lunch.

Often, school meals are the only food they eat in a day. Concentration and putting forth the energy needed for learning is difficult, although they are curious. My students crave new experiences and information.

My students like to experiment with different types of technology and media. I love watching them make connections in our ELA center activities.

My Project

Many of my students are non-readers or beginner readers. We work every day in Guided Reading groups and we also work to build stamina reading independently.

Whether they are reading the words or not, my kids feel like they have already read all of our beginner texts.

They know that good readers read more than once--and they do, too! However, at this point of the school year, we have read our texts many times. Some books have even been damaged in the process.

Brand new books will lure my students back into loving reading so that they can become the great readers they want to be.
