This project aims to acquire more engaging learning materials for students in the middle school grades who have very low reading and decoding skills. Many materials available at their skill level are aimed at younger, elementary students. We usually devote time during each decoding and reading class to practice previously taught skills, often through games. The games funded by this project will target specific decoding skills that our students are working on in an engaging, meaningful way. Once they have learned and become familiar with the games, it also lends opportunity to partner work and continued practice during down time or extension times.
