Storage for Our Stuff!

Help me give my students a storage shelf to help keep student materials organized.

My Students

I teach striving readers in grades K-5 in a suburban school in Southeastern Wisconsin. We have discovered the need for systematic, explicit phonics instruction in my building, and have worked hard this year to implement universal instruction for all students. The students I see in the Reading Room receive intensive phonics, phonemic awareness, and fluency instruction. As I enter my 6th year in the role of Reading Specialist, I am convinced that half of my job is teaching skills and strategies, and the other half of my job is to create an environment where students feel safe, comfortable, and cared for.

My goal is to help students become independent, engaged learners who see themselves as readers.

“Reading should not be presented to children as a chore or duty. It should be offered to them as a precious gift.” —Kate DiCamillo

My Project

In the Reading Room, we use notebooks, white boards, magnetic letters, and many other materials on a daily basis. Because of our limited time together, it is essential that we stay organized!

This shelf will help provide a much needed place for our reading materials.

Each student will be able to store their materials in a designated spot, allowing them to come in, quickly grab their items, and get started immediately. Transition time between groups will be more efficient, allowing for more time to be spent on learning and less time finding what we need!
