My Students

My students vary widely in terms of ages, ability levels, strengths, and educational needs, and they each have their own measures of success and growth. They range from 1st to 5th grade and they each have different learning styles and modalities. They are served the special education setting, and require extensive one-on-one instruction. I'm grateful for the opportunity to serve them and help them develop the essential skills they need to become as independent and academically successful as they can be.

My Project

The vision for this project is to provide our supported special education classroom with engaging and high interest early literacy resources to help my students develop essential phonics skills and sight word acquisition!

I have chosen four Scholastic Leveled Readers boxes, levels A through D, as a foundation we can use to provide texts at an accessible level for students with moderate to severe developmental disabilities.

These resources would be instrumental in our implementation of highly engaging literacy instruction, and would provide my students with materials they need to develop the essential phonics, fluency, and comprehension skills they will need for life.
