My Students

I am a Reading Coach so I have the amazing opportunity to work with students across the grade levels at our school. I teach lessons in Kindergarten through 5th grade as well as pull small groups of struggling readers.

Despite the challenges our students face in and out of school, they are sweet, hard-working kids and each year they grow as learners.

We are a Title One school. We have a large percentage of ELL students and migrant students. Our students struggle with language acquisition, vocabulary and reading.

My Project

Our students need books that are from different genres. These books on mythology, fairytales, fables, folktales, poetry, and figurative language will give our students exposure to different genres and the background knowledge they lack. They have heard of the movie cinderella, but understanding that different cultures have their own version of the story is new to them. Understanding that fairytales can have different points of view is also something I want to expose out students to.

Many of the students at our school have no experience with mythology and poetry.

These books will help us expose them to stories from different cultures.

English Language Learners struggle with figurative language. These poetry books and books on idioms and similes will help build their background knowledge for this genre.

These books will help expose students in several classes to these wonderful picture books and poems. They will be used through independent reading, shared reading and read-clouds.
