Help me give my students hands-on math and reading activities to make learning fun and engaging provided by alphabet stamps, letter beads, reading comprehension cards, mind games sets, word pattern and playing card activities.
First grade is a wonderful year of exploration, discovery and growth. 6 and 7 year olds are enthusiastic about school and learning. My class is a wonderful mix of sweet, energetic, innovative learners. They would be so excited and grateful to be supplied with manipulative and games to enhance their learning. When they received their individual pencil boxes on the first day of school, they took great pride in knowing they would be responsible for the contents. I know they would feel the same about any items funded here!
"I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand" ... wisely spoken by Confucius. The use of manipulatives and hands on activities is supported by learning theory and educational research to increase student learning and understand. Tools such as alphabet stamps, letter beads, reading comprehension cards, mind games sets, and word pattern and playing card activities are essential for exploration and extension of concepts. My students will be able to continue their learning when using these tools and activities in small groups or independently. All the items on my list will be available and enjoyed by my students. They will have many opportunities to use these items to make learning fun and creative. Thank you!
