As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
“The road to success is always under construction.” And no, I'm not always sure where it will lead, however with my guidance and my students enthusiasm, it will surely be filled with self-discovery, teachable moments, and the development of life-long learning.
My 2nd grade students need read-along books and batteries for their headphones to engage in read along experiences to help them to become better readers. These resources will bring learning to life in our classroom. My students will be engaged in literacy activities instead of just being told to practice reading.
My students learn best when physically engaged in a
"hands-on" activity. Listening to a book being read will help my students hear how the words on the page can come alive in a fluid, expressive way. It will also help them focus on the sounds of words being read without interruption and provides a model of fluent reading.
Your support will give my students a chance to be readers, and enjoy what hey are reading. Some students do not have difficulties developing reading skills, but for the many students who do, these read-along books will give them more opportunities to become successful readers, and the batteries will let them continue to use our listening center every day. They are so enthusiastic when learning is interactive and hands-on. The read-along books I have chosen will help motivate my students to become better readers.
