My Students

My classroom is made up of 20 amazing learners. They come to class ready to learn despite the obstacles they face prior to stepping foot in the classroom. We are a Title I school, and almost all of my students are English Language Learners. My students love coming to school because I make learning fun. My students work hard each and every day. Unfortunately, they need supplies that I can’t provide on my own. This includes reading resources that improve comprehension and oral language skills.

My Project

My students need additional visual supports in order to comprehend material that is being read to them such as felt characters, puppets, and other props. Providing students with additional visual supports also helps include them in the reading process as each child can take turns placing the appropriate character on the felt board as the story is being read. What better way to assess comprehension during story time and keep students engaged?! The characters that come along with these are such great resources to have for my visual learners and I would love to add them to our list of favorite books during storytime!
