Goal

For texts to become accessible to students who struggle and need additional motivation to read.  

 

What will be done with my students

Students will have access to playaways in the library. They would be able to check them out with a book that corresponds to them. This would allow for students to access text whom may be struggling readers and missing key foundational skills. Like a listening center in classroom, students would be able to follow a text as it is being read aloud to them at their own pace. This would help them build their fluency, word recognition, and comprehension along with motivation to read.  

 

Benefits to my students

By listening to the text and following along with the book, students would be able to hear the fluency of the text. This would also help build word recognition, comprehension, and motivation to read.  

 

Describe the Students

Richard L. Sanders is an ESE center school. All of our students have IEPs, Individualized Educational Plans, and the majority of students have FBAs, Functional Behavior Plans. The majority of our students are two or more grade levels below their grade in reading and struggle with the foundations of reading such as phenome awareness and phonics. They receive specialized instruction, however, to improve their fluency and foundational skills, many need to hear the story read aloud to them. Having access to playaways and corresponding texts would allow students to check out books and listen to their books wherever they might be. This would allow them to then comprehend the text and become more confident readers.  

 

Budget Narrative

This $1000 would go to ordering playaways for student. The cost of each playaway varies amongst the book title, but the money would go to books of interest.
