I need alphabet linking letter monkeys to improve hands on teaching strategies in my classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach a group of first-grade students who live in the heart of the Appalachian mountains of Eastern Kentucky. There is an equal mix of girls and boys. They are fun-loving, bright, energetic, and extremely eager learners. They each absorb information like a sponge, and love learning.
They are at a very critical time in their life, the beginning stage of reading and writing.
Their focus should be on learning, rather than what they don't have or what they need to be successful in school.
I'm requesting six sets of alphabet linking monkeys to improve hands-on teaching strategies. I want to make it possible for students to experience a successful learning environment. These alphabet letters will allow me to do just that. I will be able to ensure students are competing on a global scale, rather than a state based level. I will be able to provide a hands-on resource to teach irregular words, one of the CORE standards. The deconstruction of each word will allow me to apply this CORE knowledge within the classroom, resulting in more definition within learning expectations and allowing for individualized education opportunities.
My students will have a better understanding of what they are learning and why they are learning it when I am equipped with the these alphabet linking monkeys.
