My Students

My students attend a Title I school on the outskirts of town. This school has amazing families and students; however, financially, many of them struggle. My students are hard working and excited to learn. This year, more than half of my students are English language learners. This can create some challenges in learning, but they are persevering and working hard to learn more and more each day. They love to read and are excited when new books are introduced. My students are respectful and responsible. They are awesome!

My Project

These file folder games and comprehension centers will help my students to strengthen their reading skills in a more hands on way. These games will create a more engaging way to practice their comprehension skills. This will allow students to do more then just paper and pencil work sheets. The games will also help reach more students because they practice standards from 1st-3rd grade. This will help all students and create less stressful learning environment where all students can access materials at their level. These materials would greatly help my class and would create excitement to read and work on reading.
