My Students

I am a reading interventionist in a Title I school district where about 40% of our students receive free or reduced price lunch. In my reading room, I service 62 students throughout the day. I read with students that range from kindergarten through second grade. My students are excited to grow as readers and come into my room each day ready to learn! All of the students that I service are considered below grade level in reading expectations. Their drive to grow as readers amazes me each and every day!

With a new kidney table in our room, students would be noticeably more engaged in reading activities within their small group intervention time.

Our school is a PBIS school, promoting a Positive Behavioral Intervention System by teaching our students the school's core rules: Be Respectful, Responsible and Safe. We also follow the Responsive Classroom model to help provide a positive community within our classrooms.

My Project

I provide reading interventions in my Title I Reading room at a K-2 school. Everyday, I meet with small groups to provide these interventions for students who need extra support in reading. Currently, I have a small rectangle table for my students.

Currently, my students do not have a kidney table for intervention in our reading room.

A kidney table would provide an ideal setting for small group instruction for all of my students.

The children do not have enough space at my current small group table to comfortably read their books or work with literacy materials during instruction. This makes it difficult for me to teach to their needs, or for them to be able to learn. A small group kidney table that seats 3-6 would dramatically change my ability to comfortably meet with my students at in a small group.
