Ms. Walters from Youngstown OH is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the ability to improve their text fluency for life with headphones, a CD player and read alongs!
This year, I am lucky enough to have 13 wonderfully kind, bright, and persistent students! I am sure you are thinking, 13?! What a small class size! How nice!" You are right, it is nice! My students come from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds, but we don't let that stop us from being successful in the classroom. All my students receive free breakfast and lunch, and some dinner. This is only my second year of teaching, but when I tell you that I have never met such a unique group of students in my life, it couldn't be more true! My students are truly dedicated to getting to their next level of learning.
Third grade is a big year for students, especially students in Ohio! The state of Ohio has something called the Third Grade Reading Guarantee that says a student who is in third grade should be reading at level, and if they are not, they will struggle to get to their next level of learning throughout the rest of their schooling. Students undergo AIR state assessments twice a year. This assessment determines whether or not a student goes into the fourth grade. Text fluency and comprehension is a big part of this assessment. The materials I am asking for are a CD player, headphones, and books that come with a CD of a person reading it. The books that I have requested range in level so that each student will have the opportunity to listen to books on their individual level, as well as listen to books that are a third grade or level, which will provide them with examples of good text fluency and will help them improve in their own reading. Text fluency is an important skill to master. When having a good foundation of text fluency, my students will be able to get to their next level of learning. So, this listening station will help improve this specific skill immensely, and will help get them ready for not only the AIR, but for the rest of their schooling.
