My Students

My beloved students live in a city that is struggling with poverty and a majority of my students live at or below the poverty level.

I am passionate about education and I want my students, despite living in tough conditions, to be able to have fun while learning in the classroom.

While my students live through tough conditions I don’t want them to see school as a chore but a fun and rewarding safe place for them to learn.

I want my students to be able to have access to hands on phonics and sight word literacy centers so they can ,ask the gains needed to learn to decode and read on grade level.

My Project

My students have had a really hard time retaining their sight words this year, and I want to be able to have more hands on activities for their guided reading literacy centers.

My students will benefit from being able to manipulate their sight words and phonics words it will help them to retain the skills they are learning; as sight words are critical for learning to read fluently.

With the stamp and write sight words my students will be able to stamp and trace their sight words. The Fill in the Blank Phonics Stamps will help to ensure that they are able to apply basic phonics concepts independently in their guided reading literacy stations.

The sight word puzzles will students to learn how to unscramble the sight words, thus increasing their ability to spell the words correct. The Creating Sight Word Sentenced will help my students to visually see the different parts a sentence needs to have. The Phonics Instant Learning Complete Set and the Touch And Read Phonics will be used in literacy stations after I have introduced a new phonics skill.
