I teach in an inner-city school. Some of the students don't have much, so I do what I can to make sure they have everything they deserve in the classroom. It is heartwarming to see their appreciation of each and every little thing. I am a reading intervention teacher. I work with small groups of children pulled from their classroom because they are reading below grade level. My job is to help bridge that gap.
So, the students just need to walk into the room and feel like they love it and can't wait to get started.
I want them to oooooh and ahhhhh when they enter the room. They need to feel like it's ok to be pulled from their class, they need to look forward to it. This will make them feel special.
Beautifying the space will help to promote a love of reading, I hope.
As a reading intervention teacher, I am always searching for fun-filled ways to reinforce the basics. Educational games are the perfect way to blend the reinforcement of reading skills with splash of enjoyment.
The reading intervention block begins with the introduction of a new skill or the review of strategy that has been previously taught.
The lesson follows with a well written and entertainingly illustrated book. The students love the components of the intervention block, but sometimes are a bit reluctant to leave their classroom. So, I like to spice things up a bit and end each lesson with a game that will reinforce whatever we have been learning. The games that I have chosen will reinforce phonics, sight words, and vocabulary skills.
