This year has been a productive and busy year so far. I have learned many things from the workshops/ in-services that I have attended. They have helped me to better work with my students and determine what steps I need to take next. My students have made progress in their reading abilities and I believe that they enjoy reading more.
In the last half of the year I want to use strategies that I have learned in our last in-service. I feel that many of the strategies will work well with my students. I also feel that they will become better readers and feel more comfortable with their reading abilities. This will help them as they work in other areas of their academics and in general life skills.
