Ms. Feldkamp from Sioux Falls SD is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Are Going to Show Our Reading Skills Off!

My students need binders that will last all year. I am now teaching middle school and I will be teaching a reading class for struggling readers. We are going to build reading portfolios.

My Students

I love the diversity that I have in my classroom. I have students from all over the world. The students from sixth, seventh, and eighth grade work on reading, writing, listening and speaking.

The students are excited to be there and are willing to work hard even when something is difficult for them.

Many of the students at my school are on free and reduced lunches. We have students that live in poverty, some in extreme poverty. Many families struggle to cover basic needs.

My Project

My students are going to build a personal portfolio in their binders as they discover, learn, and apply what strong readers do when they read. Folders are nice, but they don't last all year. They will use the dividers in their binders to divide goals, reading strategies and genres. They will also save work that they want to showcase during parent teacher conference.

An important project that my students will complete is a data wall inspired by the book "The Dot" by Peter H Reynolds.

When a student reaches a goal they will be able to decorate a two and a half inch dot with markers and place it on our wall to create a mural of dots.
