My Students

How can my students learn to apply close reading strategies without books? Our 5th grade team departmentalized this year and I am responsible for teaching ELA to 56 kiddos. As our arts-integrated public charter school in Las Vegas grows, resources are needed to compete globally and think critically. Many of the students I teach are at least 2-3 grade levels above 5th grade. Some of them need appropriate and leveled content to enrich their instructional level.

My students need flexibility to sit around the room comfortably and literature resources to be creatively challenged and motivated.

My Project

Do you remember how uncomfortable sitting in a hard chair in elementary school was? Well, I certainly do which is why I’m requesting flexible seating for my kiddos during reading. Students love to sit on a comfy chair while reading in a corner or under a desk. Being comfortable while reading such titles as, “The War That Changed My Life,” “Fish in a Tree,” and “Crenshaw” can make all the difference in the world to students.

Creating a classroom environment where materials are easily accessible is why I am requesting wall mounted files for students.

Lastly, students need differentiation for writing which lessens frustration and provides scaffolding for students who struggle with organizations and brainstorming.
