My Students

As a teacher in a low income and high poverty school, my students are faced with many struggles inside and outside of the classroom. Despite the challenges they might face, they don't give up.

They are dreamers, thinkers, learners, and go-getters.

Their determination to succeed is what keeps myself as their teacher going every day. I know that I can't change their struggles outside of school, but I pride myself in helping them overcome them in the classroom. I strive to make sure at the end of the day they have all of their tools in their tool belts to be successful in life.

My Project

Having these materials will allow my students to have fun and learn at the same time. The interactive games will be a great way to create some competition and a fun atmosphere all while practicing their reading skills. They will practice finding details, theme, vocabulary and language skills all while playing a game.

We also know that the more students can practice reading comprehension, the better they will understand it.

The reading folders will allow the students to practice in a way they usually don't.

Who wouldn't love to read and play a board game? I know I wouldn't. By fulfilling this project, you would be allowing my students to have that chance! Reading can be fun and this project will help them see that.
