My students need small center activities such as the Boost Comprehension Small-Group Teaching Center, Close Reading Comprehension Center, What's the Point? Comparing Text Center and the Common Core Daily Language Practice Center to improve comprehension.

"Reading without reflecting is like eating without digesting". Edmund Burke said it best!
Working at a Title I school comes with several challenges.
Over half of my third-graders are on free or reduced lunch. Two-thirds come from homes where Spanish is the primary language. It's no surprise that so many of them struggle with comprehension.
By the time students enter my classroom, most of them have learned to read fluently, but have little comprehension. Reading without meaning is a recurring problem year after year. With this project, I hope to be able to set up small learning centers that will allow my students to practice comprehension skills in a variety of ways. I hope to show them how to take small chunks of high-interest text and carefully examine each piece. My students will learn how to utilize graphic organizers to find the evidence that supports their answers.
With the activities funded through this project, I hope to bring meaning to my students' reading.
I want to show them that there is a purpose with all reading we do, whether it be learning new information or for pure entertainment. I hope to create life long readers!
