Help me give my students a variety of tools to reinforce the concepts they are learning.

My Students

I am a Reading Support Teacher. I instruct students from kindergarten to fourth grade, depending on the needs of the students during the school year. Students come to work with me in a small group setting throughout the day. The needs of each individual and group is varied. Many of them have social, emotional, behavioral, and academic needs. These students are often reluctant to try in a large classroom and many are self-conscious of their own abilities.

My goal is for all students to make accelerated progress and in the process to become confident, independent readers.

Small group reading support provides students a place to be successful while having direct instruction tailored for their learning style and needs.

My Project

My students do a variety of activities all centered around reading and writing. As many of my students are reluctant readers, it is sometimes necessary to be more creative in my approach. These tools will provide my students the opportunity to practice the skills they are learning in fun and engaging ways.

I love to see their confidence grow as they improve in reading and writing.

Research supports the relationship of movement and brain activity accelerating student progress. This donation would be a wonderful opportunity for these students. Thank you for your consideration!
