My Students

My students are wonderful and respectful children. They struggle in reading, but work hard to try to excel. They are from diverse backgrounds and diverse cultures. They have many walls that get in the way of comprehending what they read, but they try hard.

They are in a ESL Language Arts classroom.

Our environment is friendly and encouraging. The students help each other when they struggle in reading. Since they are in all levels, some of the stronger readers help the ones that struggle during read-aloud. We set goals at the beginning of the year so students can work hard to achieves their goal. They are wonderful 6th graders that will benefit greatly from this project.

My Project

The books and seating options that are in this project will help my students stay focused and engaged while reading. They are on all different levels and need support while reading. Creating a reading environment will give them the encouragement needed to excel in reading. Since my student are ELL’s, they tend to struggle with not only staying focused but reading comprehension as well. I added different level books so a wide variety of students will benefit from the reading project. The flexible seating aspect will help students choose their comfort zone that will ultimately help them stay focused and raise their reading level.

This reading project will help my students succeed in their ultimate goal of being better readers.

They will be able to understand what they are reading and in the end they will enjoy reading.
