My Students

My classroom has 25 wonderfully diverse students who come to school each day eager to learn. Some students are confused about the material presented or find it difficult to stay engaged. My goal is to use different types of materials to help these students learn in their own unique way and at their own pace.

Our school is filled with caring educators that nurture all of these beautiful children in ways that extend beyond the classroom.

I am truly blessed to teach at this school with these wonderful, amazing students and teachers.

My Project

I am wanting to get some guided reading materials to help my students while we are doing out guided lessons. I would like to provide them with magnetic letters to help them spell words or to help them understand prefixes and suffixes.

I am hoping to provide the materials to help them expand their reading fluency and to progress their comprehension and understanding.

I think it is important for the students to have the materials on hand to build on their skills in ways they never thought of before. I hope I am able to do that for them this year!
