My Students

My students are amazing. They are a group of children with significant disabilities. Every day each child learns math, science, reading, social skills, and life skills. They are tech savvy and can use a chromebook to go from educational software to a favorite video with zero assistance from me.

My students may have many challenges to traditional learning, but in our classroom they learn the way that fits them best.

Students use manipulatives, sensory equipment, touch screen chromebooks, Google Read & Write, and many other visual and sensory supports.

My Project

I am requesting a twenty book guide reading collection. These guided readers will ensure that my students have books on their reading level to choose during independent reading time. Being able to select a book and read it in its entirety all by themselves boosts their confidence and makes them want to read another book.

With this book collection, my students will also be able to choose books that interest them.

The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading. My students already have shown an astonishing interest in independent reading, and this project will only help enrich their experiences with the printed word.
