My Students

My students come from a variety of different backgrounds. Many speak one or more languages in addition to English at home. Some have special needs which make focusing and maintaining attention difficult for them. Many of my students come from low-income backgrounds. Their families are hardworking and dedicated to providing the best for their children.

I work with second grade students that have a wide range of interests and ability levels.

My students are all excited to learn. They work hard to master Common Core standards. My school emphasizes student involvement through project-based learning.

My Project

These books will allow me to efficiently implement the "Words Their Way" spelling program in my classroom. This program focuses on spelling patterns and helps students to become both better spellers and readers.

I am asking for five books from the "Words Their Way" spelling program.

These books are "Words Their Way for PreK-K", "Words Their Way Letter and Picture Sorts for Emergent Spellers," "Words Their Way: Word Sorts for Letter Name - Alphabetic Spellers," "Words Their Way: Word Sorts for Within Word Pattern Spellers," and "Words Their Way: Word Sorts for Syllables and Affixes Spellers." These books contain everything I will need to implement the program in a classroom with a diverse group of learners.
