My Students

My 4th grade class is made up of 28 students. 98 % are Hispanic. 18 students have been identified as SPED students with IEP's that require accommodations and modifications to their learning. Most of the students are coming from two separate households and do not have parental help with their homework. They are a great group of students that are eager to learn.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves to learn.

They all learn through different ways and methods. I have to vary the instructional materials used to make their learning meaningful. I incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each students' needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

My project will equip each of my students with their own workbook that will hep them prepare for the FSA Assessment that they will take in the Spring of 2020. These particular workbooks will cover all of the benchmarks that students need the additional practices. Currently, my students do not have their own consumable workbook to use. Their real learning comes when they can hold the reading materials in their own hands and underline text evidence. Teachers can model lessons through the smart board and in turn students can have their own copy to practice on. This makes learning more meaningful.

The addition of these workbooks to the class will help my students read and answer higher order questions more thoroughly.

They will be able to underline and highlight in the workbook as needed. We will use these materials to aid us in the process of becoming life-long readers. As the teacher, I have done extensive research and reading on the importance of reading comprehension. I desperately need your support to make this a reality. Thanks!
