My Students

My students come from a variety of backgrounds at one of the only schools in the rural setting in Indianapolis. I teach third, fourth, and fifth grade students who get special education support. My students have a variety of disabilities and a larger variety of personalities!

It is crucial to give every student the opportunity to be successful.

My students want to be successful just like any other student, but they need extra support to allow them to become successful.

My Project

My school is making a change from using basal readers (text books) to using a mini lesson approach during reading. During these mini lessons, teachers will use books to do an interactive read aloud to focus on a specific reading skills. (Sometimes it can be a grammar skill as well.)

Interactive read alouds are engaging to students of all ages and grades.

No student is too old to be read to.

I think this is a positive change for our district and as a teacher, I want to be as prepared as possible to set up my students for success.
