My Students

My students need a variety of materials to keep their learning current and appealing. The skills that are addressed in each grade are more demanding than they used to be. Children are expected to move quickly through the curriculum. I need to keep their interest with technology and creative items.

My students are eager to learn and are a great bunch of children.

There are 12 girls and 7 boys. This Kindergarten class is racially diverse. Our school is a Title 1 school and has many low economic level families. The school also has a large english as a second language population.

My Project

I have recently acquired a laptop for my classroom. I have a need for a mouse and Microsoft Office to be used with the laptop. I plan on doing Word, power points, spread sheets, and other things in my classroom. The sight word leveled readers will give the children extra practice in reading beginning books. I ordered Level 1 and Level 2 so that I can meet the students at their current level. I also found a lot of games and teaching tools that will reinforce phonemic awareness, phonics, vowels, and letters. The Vowel Teaching Tubs will really help with both the long and short vowel sounds. The Phonemic Awareness Listening Pack can be used in a listening center to practice phonic skills. This set includes four books for each skill.

The computer items of this project, the mouse and Microsoft Office, will keep the student's interest and will be used across the curriculum.

The other items requested in this project will be used to teach language arts. The children will read and practice their phonics skills.
