Classroom Tools to Succeed in Literacy

Help me give my students learning supplies. We are in need of alphabet stamps, puzzles, and sight word activities in order to be able to practice hands on Literacy Centers in our classroom.

My Students

In our Kindergarten classroom, some students are learning to read, write, and count, while others are learning to imitate sounds, identify letters, and hold a pencil. Kindergarten is an exciting time where students are developing academic skills as well as social and emotional skills.

7 out of 19 students in my classroom are English learners.

They all come to school with positive attitudes ready to learn something new everyday! Our classroom community consists of a diverse culture that works together as a team daily.

My Project

My kindergarten students have been without a classroom teacher until they met me this January! This means they have never had the chance to work with hands on activities during literacy or math centers. We love to learn, but we need interactive activities to help us. The alphabet stamps, letters, and puzzles will allow us to finally have literacy centers in our classroom!

These activities will let us become letter and sight word experts and even make learning more exciting!

They will also provide our classroom with structure and daily routines we must follow in order to become responsible learners.
