Building Blocks for Building Words

My students need 5 magnet letters kits that they can move freely to create different phonics patterns.

My Students

Children make mistakes often. Let's save some erasers and practice phonics patterns with letters that don't need erasing.

My students are creative and love to write.

They make many mistakes with spelling however. In kindergarten they learn to recognize letters and all the sounds they make. Throughout first grade they are learning to apply all the different letter sounds to words as they read. In second grade, together, we are learning to recognize many different letter patterns that can create one sound. If we master that skill, they can apply it to their writing without many erase marks.

My Project

Every morning, while the students are eating breakfast, we can practice all of our phonics patterns. Breakfast is messy, and paper cutout letters will be ruined frequently. Magnetic letters that are sturdy and can be cleaned easily will really help students succeed in mastering this very important skill.

My project will create a learning environment built for building words.

This will help students not only learn to read, but also learn to write those wonderful stories that they love to create.
