I lead small-group reading clubs every morning to support students that need additional learning support. These students primarily need help with phonics and reading comprehension strategies.
Our students come in with a variety of instructional needs.
Some are struggling while others are above grade level, but they are all readers who constantly seek to improve their understanding of the world through reading. Our students work hard; they're here early and stay late (7:15-4:00). They have longer school years, call and email us after school to get help with their homework, and do anything to meet their goals and compete in our increasingly globalized world. Over two-thirds of my students receive free or reduced lunch. And while many of our students enter below grade level, all of them make exceptional gains through a commitment to education and sheer effort. Our students inspire me through their hard work and dedication to getting better at everything.
Students traditionally use small whiteboards and markers to practice writing out different sounds they are learning. The whiteboards and markers are costly and don't last very long. The Boogie Board eWriters offer students a fun and interactive way of practicing their phonics. The instant erase feature allows for more drill and practice time for students, resulting in a more productive lesson.
I work with students who give 110% every day and are willing to work hard the moment they arrive at school.
These same students also spend time after school to get additional learning support. I believe these students deserve the right tools to maximize their reading potential.
