I work in a title one school with students that are developmentally delayed. Most of the students at our school are on free and reduced lunch. My students are just learning to grasp the beginning skills needed to read. I am writing this proposal in hopes to receive some materials to help me provide them with the hands on early literacy experiences they need. I would love to have some Learn-your Name Puzzles and Word Building Blocks from Lakeshore. My children just love to see their names and with these puzzles they can learn to spell their names and other words. The learning blocks are chunky letter blocks and bases they can use to form words. These materials would help my students to develop early word building skills in a super-involving way. I would keep them in a center and they would be available for my students to use all day long. They will be used for many, many years to come. Our school funds are limited so I am asking your help in providing these for my students. Thank you so much for considering my proposal and helping my special children to read.
