My Students

My students need to be challenged! My students are considered at risk and would benefit greatly from any help. Many of them were victims of Hurricane Harvey and are still recovering. These students are wonderful and need to be nurtured educationally. That is why it is so important to me to have resources available to them. My students want, and are able to, learn and accomplish their own goals. I want to be able to help them do this. They deserve it!

My Project

My students love to read, but we are working on making sure we are "real" readers. It is so easy for students to become distracted or off task when reading and then they don't remember or understand what they read. It is my hope that with these leveled readers, my students can read books more suited to their instructional reading levels and therefore be able to comprehend more of what they read. The teaching easel will allow me to more easily teach them the strategies necessary to be able to monitor their own comprehension. Teaching math, writing, science and social studies will also benefit from this easel. I know that my students would be so thankful, as would I, if these items were in our classroom.
