My Students

My students are hard-working kids who want to do well in school. They need materials that allow them to practice their independent reading skills in order to achieve all they can be. Each student comes into my class with his/her own strengths and weaknesses, and it is my job to help them reach their individual goals. Some of my students struggle with reading fluency and others struggle with comprehension. These materials will allow them to practice the reading skills they need to make them successful.

We need to have engaging materials that allow us to independently increase our reading skills.

We need to get excited about learning! We have created an environment that allows for creativity and support. Our room is bright and cheerful and allows for independent and group work. Our lessons are designed to meet the various needs and abilities of all the students.

Our school is part of Milwaukee Public Schools. Our school has excellent attendance and is part of a great community. I love my job and just want to provide my students with the best opportunities to become all they can be!

My Project

These small group reading materials will allow students to independently work on their reading skills. Our classroom is designed to meet all students at their reading level and inspire growth. Students need to be be provided with opportunities to practice reading skills. As with all skills, practice is the key.

New small group reading materials will inspire the students to practice reading.

These materials will provide the needed materials for growth when added to our listening station, class library, and teacher lead groups. When students increase their independent reading ability, their overall access to curriculum is improved. These materials will help the students achieve all they can be!
