These fun, hands on, and engaging materials will help my kindergarten kids learn to identify the letters in the alphabet. This is one of the most important building blocks of becoming a life-long reader and writer. The sooner I can help them with letter identification, the sooner we can move on to letter sounds and blending sounds to read and write words. Children have different ways of learning and these materials will provide the opportunity for my kids to engage in the alphabet using all three of the learning styles: auditory, visual, and kinesthetic. For example, they will enjoy searching for letters in the search and find sensory tub. This will provide a great tactile experience. Also, they will have the opportunity to build the letters of the alphabet using play dough or magnetic pieces. These literacy materials will help close the achievement gap that many kids face who come from low income families, and help set them on the path of becoming life-long learners. We will use these manipulatives during whole group instruction time, literacy centers time, and intervention time. Your generous donation to this project will improve my kindergarten classroom by building stronger readers and writers. This will change my students' lives for the better. They will love school and feel success at an early age --- having fun while learning!
