The students have been utilizing the program of Smarty Ants by Achieve 3000, to practice their reading skills in English.

Student 3: Lesson 2 Level 2 -The student requires extensive scaffolding with the name formation and primary sounds of the following lower case letter: c.
In order for the students to be successful the students should be exposed to authentic literature, phonological awareness and simple word building. I plan to conduct more interactive reading sessions in English by renting authentic literature from the school's library. I can ask the students to look at a picture and write what they see in the English language, to facilitate their learning I can ask the students to look at our English word wall. I can work wit the students in a small group session and go over the alphabet's letters and have the students tell me the sounds of the letters in English. I can work with the students in a small group session and build sentences with sight words written in sentence strips.
