My Students

I am teaching about sixty students this year in a reading intervention class. This class is designed to help students who are significantly below grade level. I have a wide spectrum of ability levels ranging from students who do not speak English to students who are only a year or two behind their grade level. With the limited resources we have available, I don't have much that helps readers that are significantly below grade level. To help meet the needs of my students, I have found specific skill studies to be super beneficial in eliminating gaps and helping students grow who are reading at a lower elementary level. Therefore, I would love to have different reading skill sets in order to make sure all students can successfully close all the reading gaps in order to read on grade level.

I have found that books that focus on different skill areas are beneficial for my students in mastering that skill.
