Mrs. Thompson from Brownsboro TX is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Building a Foundation for Reading!

My students need a variety of phonics learning games to help them become fluent readers.

  • $666 goal

This project expired on February 5, 2014.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Have you ever had the amazing experience of watching a child grow and develop into a fluent reader? I have! It gives me great joy when a child has that foundation to build upon. We are needing phonics activity kits to use during center time to help us become fluent readers.

I teach 20 enthusiastic and eager to learn first graders in a small East Texas town.

Our school is Title 1, therefore many of my students do not have access to resources in their homes for extra phonics practice. They need these phonics kits to help build their foundation to become successful in reading!

My Project

I am asking donors to give a variety of phonics activities and games to help my students become better readers. These kits will include practice with beginning, middle, and ending sounds, blends, digraphs, and phonemic awareness. They are also fun for the kids, so they are engaged in learning, having fun, and building a foundation for reading all in one!

Reading is such an important factor in becoming successful.

Please help me to provide a foundation for these students. Your donation will help my students become successful and fluent readers!
