Goal

To increase student engagement in learning to read by providing books that are high interest and leveled for beginning readers. To provide opportunities for extended practice of phonics skills by using decodable texts that are interesting and age appropriate for older students with reading deficits. 

 

What will be done with my students

These materials will be permanently integrated into instruction within Midtown's new Center for Literacy Innovation. Students will use decodable texts in small groups to help extend their practice with phonics and become more fluent readers. Leveled texts will be incorporated into classroom libraries so that students are able to choose engaging books that are "just right" for their reading level during independent reading time. 

 

Benefits to my students

Student's reading fluency and comprehension will improve with increased practice of the skills they are learning in the Center for Literacy Program. Having exciting texts that they feel confident in reading will help increase student motivation in the reading process and build their background knowledge and vocabulary.  

 

Describe the Students

I serve as an ESE teacher in the Center for Literacy Innovation, but I work with every student in the program--all of whom have a specific pattern of reading difficulties or a specific learning disability in reading. Many of these students have experienced great frustration and failure in learning to read and need as much encouragement and motivation as possible to grow into fully confident, literate learners.
