My Students

My students have difficulty with reading and written language skills. We work daily to build a strong literacy foundation. One of my main goals is for each child to improve his reading skills and confidence. R. Frost once said " I am an awakener." I hope to awaken my children to a love of learning!

My students are mostly second graders in a small, rural community.

It is a Pre-Kindergarten - Fourth grade school. My students need additional books to help enhance our At Home Reading program and Reading with Baker program. These programs help provide an opportunity for my students to practice and reinforce their reading skills, decoding strategies, reading fluency, and reading comprehension. This practice helps build their self esteem and provides a motivational factor. Our school is focused on helping each child reach his or her full potential. We set high expectations for all students and then work with each child to meet, and possibly exceed, their expectations or goals. We have a very active volunteer program and are always looking for ways to encourage parent involvement and community support.

My Project

My students will have the opportunity to select a "Just Right Book" to read daily to their parents as part of our "Take Home Reading " program. Our volunteer dog, Baker comes in as often as he can and children also have the opportunity to select a book and read to him. This provides the students with an opportunity to practice and reinforce all the reading skills and strategies we are learning, develop their sight word vocabulary, improve reading fluency and build their self-esteem.

My students will have a greater variety of reading materials to select books they are truly interested in reading.

This will encourage motivation and help to engage them. "The More You Read, the Better You Get " is one of our classroom cheers. Some of the main goals of the "Reading with Baker " program are to build confidence, self-esteem, motivation and reading skills, while having fun! These books will help make a difference in the lives of my students this year and many years to come!
