They work hard and want to learn, even when it is a struggle. The materials that I am trying to get will be used by students to build their vocabulary literally. They will form the letters and build words. They will use the hands-on materials to build their foundation for reading. We will continue to build on that foundation with the comprehension tools that focus on specific skills for understanding what they read. My students will become better readers and in turn more successful students with these materials. They thrive on the few hands-on manipulatives we already have and could learn and grow so much more if given the opportunity to do so. The Nemours(r) BrightStart! Complete Program will be used by students to build and write words in a variety of kinesthetic ways to help them to remember how letters work together to make words. Reading Comprehension Cubes, and Comprehension Practice Cards will be used as practice to focus on specific skills or reading for a purpose, and adding cariety to reading comprehension practice. Textured Touch and Trace Cards Wil be used for making words and connecting the letter shape through touch to its name and sound. Sight Words String Ups, Unifix(r) Phonics Small-Group Set, Wikki Stix(r) Alphabet Cards,Playfoam® Shape & Learn and Lowercase Stamp Set will be used to build words in new ways. This helps to keep the students engaged in learning of new words and letter combinations.
