I teach all subjects to my class of 2nd graders. We are making great progress and need your help to get a little further this year.

Students do not always enjoy going through the steps of the writing process. They need some encouragement to really make the effort to improve their skills. Practicing reading is not much fun for a struggling 2nd grader. I try very hard to provide extra incentives for my students. They must enjoy the practicing for it to have its full effect. Fluency is a major part of reading. Our goal is to have all students reading at 90 words per minute by the end of the year. My students love using my sight word flash cards. However, it does them no good to if they are reinforcing the wrong pronunciation of the word.

I would like to provide my students with headset microphones to use in class. These headsets will provide multiple benefits to us in several different areas. In reading, students will practice reading a selection or poem until they feel comfortable recording their reading. In writing, students will create their own story and record the finished piece and publish the read aloud to our class website. In fluency, students can listen to the words being pronounced correctly while following along on a powerpoint of the sight words.

Providing my students with the ability to create and use recording of their own reading; especially reading of their own words would make such an impact. I try to give them a sense of pride in their accomplishments. With these headset microphones, I can record the student reading and publish it on our class website. This will really engage the student' interest and excitement.
