Goal

The goal of this educational resource request is to enhance the language arts and reading block in my classroom. The daily language arts goal is to use word work, close in study of complex text, explicit reading/writing instruction and vocabulary. The reading goal is to instruct by delivering lessons and creating a classroom that is rich in phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. 

 

What will be done with my students

The funds for the educational resources being requested will be used to set up an engaging multi-use Language Art Activities Center. The educational resources will be interchanged throughout the school year to provide interest and variety. The center will be divided into three areas. Each of these areas will be used by three to four students at a time while the teacher is working with small groups in guided reading. Students will be taught how to use the games in whole group setting so they understand the purpose of each game and their benefit.  

 

Benefits to my students

Students will learn language arts and reading concepts through play while developing strategies to reinforce those concepts to improve and enhance their fluency and comprehension. Most of the students do not have these types of educational toys at home. As a group the class and I visited the Learning Resource web site and created a wish list of learning games and displayed those during Open House to their parents. If the grant request is accepted the students will be overjoyed to see their wish list come true. 

 

Describe the Students

This 3rd grade class is made up of 18 students. Ten boys and eight girls. Eight of the students are ELL students. Four of the students are SE with one of those being in the Gifted Program. The students are motivated to learn and lack resources at home to purchases books and games. Eight of the students are lower performers and need challenging and creative resources to engage their thinking and learning to motivate them in language arts and reading.
