Help me give my students reading materials, pencils, sand trays for forming words, playdough for strengthening fine motor skills, and a large post-it pad for writing.
My school is a rural, Title I school in Tennessee where poverty is high and experiences are limited. These students are pushed every day to achieve high levels of academic excellence, and they work hard daily to achieve with our rigorous expectations.
"It's not who I am but what I do that defines me," is a quote on my Batman door that students see every time they enter and exit my room.
I believe in my learners and want to help them become excellent readers and writers.
As a reading interventionist, I have been to a multitude of training on the importance of handwriting and writing skills as they relate to reading. Therefore, I am requesting handwriting materials to supplement a program I use in the classroom called "Handwriting Without Tears." I am requesting sand writing boxes and playdough to create letters and words while strengthening fine motor skills. I am also requesting slide, stamp and see screens to use with "Handwriting Without Tears."
To help increase our reading fluency skills, I am requesting "The Mega Book of Fluency" by world-renowned literacy guru Tim Rasinsky.
This book will help us practice phrasing, reading, intonation and getting better at reading. Lastly, I am requesting "Road to Reading" which is a research-based reading program to continue to help make a difference with my students in the area of reading. Thank you for considering my project and helping my students become better readers and writers.
