Supporting Superheroes Succeed!

My students need Scholastic News, Science Spin magazines and high interest low readability books to practice their reading. They also need heavy duty book bins to easily access the books in our classroom library.

My Students

Our school is a culturally and economically diverse public school in New York City. The students in my classroom are students with learning and emotional disabilities. Despite their disabilities, my students have a hunger for learning. I am looking to foster their love of learning and their sense of independence.

My students are caring, imaginative, and enthusiastic.

The majority of my students are far below grade level. They struggle with basic phonic skills and basic math skills. I want to give them every opportunity to succeed academically and independently.

My Project

My students are Superheroes because they push through their disabilities. They have a hunger for learning, however, don’t have many materials that meet their needs. My Superheroes can often be found in the classroom library, but because we are limited in books they can read, they often become frustrated and sometimes just flip through the pages hoping to see pictures. Having high interest low readability books will assist them in becoming better readers and achieving their goals. The heavy duty book bins will allow them to easily access the books in our library without injuring themselves.

With these supplies, my Superheroes will be able to achieve a goal of working independently.

The best way to increase reading stamina is to have the ability to chose books that interest them. Having Scholastic News and Science Spin magazines will also assist my Superheroes in their reading while learning and exploring the world around them.

Having a variety of supplies, such as, Velcro and labels will assist me in supporting my students work independently. Our classroom works in small groups. These supplies will assist students by clearly understanding which group they will be working in and working independently. These supplies will be used all year to help us succeed academically and independently.
