My Students

This project is for a special inclusion kindergarten classroom at Jay Elementary. We currently have 16 students with 6 of those students having special needs. We are one of three model inclusion classrooms in the Santa Rosa County School District. We are a very active class and require creative and exciting ways to learn new concepts and review skills. I know that Learning Alive will make learning fun and engaging so our students will make gains.

Jay Elementary has 7% of students with 3 or more at risk indicators, 8% (42 students) are homeless, 15% ESE population, 58% poverty rate (increased 6% over past 3 years) and approximately 70% of kindergarten students start with no Pre-School foundation.

Currently, Jay Elementary has 94 students with 10 or more absences. Jay Elementary has 63 Kindergarten students and 20 at risk students with reading or math performance at least one year behind their current grade level. If these students are not given an opportunity to improve their reading and math skills with engagement for learning, they are at greater risk of falling further behind in their classroom making the chance of truancy and dropping out of school increase.

My Project

The Alive Studios software, is an amazing software that brings learning alive. Literally! The software in combination with a active board turns the regular letter, sight word, and picture cards into to audible moving objects! It is absolutely amazing! For example, if I show the letter B card it will say the letter, make the sound, and after a few moments a realistic bear will pop out of the card and roar. If I put that card in a sentence of other cards the visual can change. When I use the cards "The bear is red." The bear will turn red. If I change the red card to green, the bear will turn green, if I change the green card to run, the bear will start running. This software will help build my students' reading skills in our whole group and centers. According to their website, there is a 48% increase in letter naming fluency, 112% increase in letter sound fluency, and classroom management problems decrease. Also, students who typically have attention difficulties were constantly engrossed in the program.

If I could afford the software for this program I would buy it today!

I have researched the statistics of the software. I know this will be a vital tool in helping my students make leaps towards their personal reading and math goals. Please help me provide my students with a software program that will not only improve their reading and math skills but allow them to be actively engaged in such a fun way! Thank you for your support.
