Chicka Chicka Boom Bam!
My students need new books and materials that will help further ignite their passion for learning.
Chicka Chicka BOOM BAM! Kindergarten is the foundation of most student's education, and I want to make it a memorable one!
I teach Kindergarten at a wonderful elementary school in Florida.
My students come to school each day excited to learn something new. The school that I work at is a Title I public school in a low socioeconomic area. Many of my students are English Language Learners.
First, I am requesting a couple of classic big books, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (CCBB) and Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? These are always a hit with students, and I would like permanent copies of these in big book form so that we can read them together as a class multiple times to build fluency.
Second is CCBB on CD for my listening center along with four hard copies that are typically-sized for following along with the audio version.
Next is a "Pop" for Letter game. Students grab letters out of the game and use them to practice sounds. I have seen students use this and it really helps to motivate them to learn the sounds so they "pop" into their heads.
Next, students can use Alphabet Beads to build words. Students are able to construct words without having to know how to write them.
Finally, I am requesting a big book storage container. Because of their unconventional size, these books often take a beating. I will use this container to extend the lifespan of my big books
This project is very important to me because I need interesting materials that will keep my students motivated to learn from day one.
These materials will aid me in presenting my students with fun and memorable materials at the onset of the school year. These will be enjoyed for years to come.
