My students need magic boards, magnetic letters, rhyming sound teaching tubs, and alphabet teaching tubs for daily use during guided reading instruction.
Do you remember the first time you could write your name? Do you remember the first time you could write a word? Do you remember the first time you could read a book? Most of our students have not yet had these wonderful experiences.
Our school population has changed drastically over the past few years.
Each year we have more and more students that come to school and have not had any experience in the school setting. This year forty percent of our Kindergarten population is free and reduced. We have a group of students that cannot write their names and can identify no or very few letters. We have five students who speak very little English. We have students who are living in a homeless shelters. We have many students who are hands-on learners. Kindergartens benefit with hands on objects and with budget cuts to education, it would be so helpful to receive additional resources to help our students. Our students are hard-working and need the resources to help them learn most effectively.
Our team goal this year to is improve our guided reading instruction. We want to end this school year with a classroom of lifelong learners! We will use the following resources to help our students become readers. We are asking for magic boards. Our students will use magic boards daily during their guided reading instruction. They will use these boards to write: letters, their name, sight words, and sentences. We are asking for magnetic letters. Our students will use these to build their names and sight words, match letters, and letter/sound activities. We are asking for rhyming sound tubs to help build phonemic awareness. Rhyming is a very hard concept for students especially English Language Learners. These hands on objects would be useful to build vocabulary and engage students in their own learning. We are asking for alphabet sound tubs. These tubs would benefit students in many ways: build vocabulary, help create letter/sound associations, and be very engaging for students.
Kindergarten is a very important year for a child!
It lays the foundation for everything they will learn in the future. Our goal is for ALL students to become LIFELONG readers and writers. Literacy is so crucial not only to their education, but literacy is a critical piece to their success as adults in society. We take our jobs as kindergarten teachers very seriously and know that the time we spend nurturing and growing each child as a reader is so very important to the rest of their lives.
