My Students

My students are getting their first opportunity to read and write! In an effort to help them remember how to read/write sight words and CVC words, we use colored pencils to rainbow write. The students write words in different colors. This repeated writing helps cement the words in their mind.

My students often lack basic materials at home to help them be successful learners.

Clothing, shelter, and food are the priorities for my families. I try to provide them with materials at school that not only help make them successful, but that also make them excited. My school offers free breakfast for every student and most of my students get free or reduced lunch. They are eager to learn and excited to try new things.

My Project

My students will use the colored pencils to color their work, illustrate poetry, and rainbow write their sight words. The stamp pads will be used with our alphabet stamps. We use these stamps to spell names, words, and recognize alphabetical order. These materials will allow my students a different and creative way to express themselves.

My students will be able to express themselves in new and creative ways by using these new materials.

My students do not often get "extras", so these supplies will give them some additional options in the classroom.
