Resources for Raising Readers

My students need reading resources like: common core comprehension, daily phonics practice worksheets, and TIME For Kids magazines.

My Students

My students are placed in a high school life skills classroom. They have a variety of disabilities that include emotional, communicative, and learning difficulties. I teach them English, Social Studies, and adult daily living skills.

My students may be with me from their freshman year all the way until they are 22 years old.

Some teachers might frown at this idea, but I take it as an honor to be with these special students for so many years. I believe my classroom is their last stop before being thrown out into the real world and I want to prepare them as much as possible. However, at the high school level, we do not have many reading resources that are aimed at beginning readers.

My Project

Most of my students can not read over an early elementary level. Many of them recognize basic sight words, but the act of sounding out words is very hard for them. They need constant, daily practice with phonics and reading comprehension.

My ultimate goal is to have the majority of my students reading by the time they graduate.

Hopefully, they will take the reading strategies they have learned in my class into all aspects of their lives. Just like Dr. Seuss said, "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." My students are an inspiration to me every day, and I know they have so much more ahead of them in life. Your generous funds help them go even farther. Thank you.
