Alphabet Learning and Having Fun-All in One

My students need alphabet sounds teaching tubs to enhance their letter sound recognition skills through the use of hands-on manipulatives that begin with each letter of the alphabet.

My Students

As a kindergarten teacher of students of low economic status, mostly from single-parent homes, I am just eager to provide these students with learning experiences that will be remembered for a lifetime.

My students are full of energy and most have proven to be kinesthetic and visual learners who learn best through creative, hands-on activities.

The students become extremely excited when the colorful games and the manipulatives are placed before them.

These students are great thinkers and I want to motivate them to use their creativity to be able to relate to real life experiences.

My Project

Learning letters and their sounds is a prerequisite skill in learning to read. Kindergarten students must acquire this skill in order to become successful readers.

With the use of these alphabet tubs, the students will be able to learn letters and sounds.

These tubs include real-life objects that students can relate to, can manipulate, and associate with each letter of the alphabet as opposed to flashcards. These tubs will be used in multiple ways to teach letter sound recognition. Activities can be differentiated depending on the ability levels of the students which will ensure learning for all. Students will be learning and having fun all at the same time.
