Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 22

The activities that were received for Start at the Beginning/Learning to Read,  were very valuable to my teaching and the learning of my ESOL students.  Grades K-3 used the material to learn sight words, vowel  sounds and consonant sounds.  Many of the materials were hands on, such as the UNLOCK IT, and they felt like they were playing when actually they were learning the English language. 

 

When we moved to the First Little Readers kits, the students fell in love with the texts.  They were up to date and meaningful.   It is important to have meterials that the young learners feel confident with, and that they can relate to.  The texts were well illustrtaed to give support to my beginning readers.

 

I appreciate all of this support for these students who strive to learn and grow in a language that is new to them. 

 

Original Grant Overview

Goal

The goal is for the students to learn sounds, words and then put it all together to begin the adventure of reading. We plan to help our students, non-English speakers and our struggling readers, grow towards grade level reading and to enjoy reading in general. 

 

What will be done with my students

We meet with our students every day of the week in small groups, one on one, pushing into the classroom or pulling them out for group time. Some students get more than 2 hours of service daily. When we have small group outside of the regular class room or when working one on one, the items that are requested will be used to assist in teaching the letter names and sounds. Then when we have guided reading, these little reading books will help support and scaffold the students. 

 

Benefits to my students

It is vital that our non-English speaking students become familiar with the letters and sounds in the alphabet, and that their vocabulary is increased in order to understand the curriculum that is taught in the general ed class room. Once the students begin to understand the English language, it is still a process to help them put it together with comprehension and fluency. 

 

Describe the Students

Our students are low performers, but very active and motivated learners. All of my students are classified as ESOL.
