My Students

I teach students from low-income families in a self-contained special education classroom. My students face many challenges but are always creative and energetic, and they really love learning. They teach me so much every day about facing adversity and always having a sense of humor. All of my students are amazing and have such bright spirits. They love learning, and watching their faces light up when they finally understand a difficult concept makes me so grateful that I get to teach such a wonderful group of kids.

My Project

Leveled books for guided and independent reading are ever-important for reading instruction, and finding books on a variety of levels that are intriguing to students without breaking the bank can be a difficult task. Reading A-Z and Raz Kids are online resources that would give our class access to a wide variety of leveled books, in both online and printable versions. These subscriptions come with activities and resources like quizzes and built-in motivational rewards.

My students need access to books that are just-right for them to read independently, and with over 2,000 books on Raz-Kids and Reading A-Z, all of my students are guaranteed to find something that interests them.

Students can read e-books on their level during centers or when they have time to read. Offering my students leveled books means they will not be at frustration level, nor will the books be too easy for them. These subscriptions also give me the ability to teach reading groups on instructional levels, with everything I need for engaging lessons already included.

Writing A-Z will provide my class with a variety of engaging and easy-to-use writing lessons, so that my students can improve their writing abilities. My students are special needs and writing is a challenge for them, so having a resource like Writing A-Z with leveled lessons and printable and projectable formats, will give my students the opportunity to grow in writing. Students can even complete activities and practice their writing skills online, and submit their work on the computer. Completing interactive writing activities on the computer means students can practice their typing skills while they work on writing. Having these three online resources in my classroom will allow my students to improve their reading and writing skills and have access to more texts than they can even imagine.
