My Students

The students in my classes are the lowest academically in the district and also struggle with behavior in a large class setting. This classroom is designed to get students back up to grade level and improve behavior. The students come from all over the district, from a variety of other home schools to get targeted academic interventions in order to get them more prepared for their grade level classroom. They come from very low socioeconomic house holds. The children look for positive praise from teachers and love to have new learning experience.

They like to be read to and we frequently use read aloud stories to help improve their word knowledge and phonics skills.

The students struggle to read books by themselves, so being able to re-read stories that the teacher has already read gives them more incentive to look at a book.

My Project

My students struggle with personal space during read aloud time. Having a specific square to sit in to call their space will help them focus on the story rather than what the other students are doing in their spaces. It will also give the opportunity to split students into different groupings to work together on class assignments. Having a carpet in our classroom will be much more comfortable than the hard tile floor for students to sit on while reading independently as well. This carpet will serve a variety of purposes including read aloud seating, independent reading comfy spots, and class grouping possibilities.
