Read, Read, Read: Through Literature We Will Succeed!
My students need a set of "The Field Guide" for a vocabulary enriched class chapter book as well as several other interesting titles.
My classroom is a mixed classroom of grade level functioning kids and special education kids. We work as a team. It is challenging as all things are, but with determination and good resources, we will achieve.
I have students from all walks of life.
However, they all have some challenges in their lives. Many have a parent in jail, if not both. We come from broken homes and poverty situations. We are trying to overcome the challenges and be the best we can be.
We will read in class as a whole or in small groups. We will use the stories that have unfortunate children in them for character builders and vocabulary building. I want the students to see children like themselves overcoming their bad situations and succeeding in life.
They will not only grow intellectually but in self worth as well.
Our goal as a district is to raise the graduation levels. We want students to have confidence in themselves in spite of the lives they live outside of school.
