My Students

Each of my students has a unique and multifaceted universe of their own. They hold various interests and love to converse about their specialties whether its cars, dog breeds, music, or their newest idea for a sci-fi character. They are creative, insightful, and perceptive. The spectrum of their imagination helps them intake information with highly visual, kinesthetic, and interactive learning styles. Although they face challenges in their learning, they work hard and persevere to overcome their obstacles.

My Project

My students will use these materials to develop their skills in phonics, vocabulary, reading comprehension and basic math operations during small groups interventions and independent practice time. Given that these materials help make learning basic concepts into interactive games my diverse learners will be more motivated to practice the concepts we work on during our interventions in order to meet their IEP goals in learning their multiplication facts, recognizing main ideas in passages and gaining phonics and blending skills to increase their reading fluency and comprehension. My students will also benefit from the interactive tools these materials provide to meet their goals such as learning geometric shape recognition by using the block design boards and regrouping with the magnetic regrouping chart. Also the digraph match game and comprehension practice cards will facilitate their engagement in their small groups sessions.
