Easel-y Teaching

My students need 1 set of uppercase Jumbo Magnetic letters, 1 set of lowercase jumbo magnetic letters, and an all-purpose mobile easel.

My Students

Help us "reach"! Our board is too high up for us to reach and we are tired of climbing up and down the stepping stool. We are also trying to reach our goal of reading and writing independently or with little guidance from our teacher.

My kindergarten students are at the beginning stages of reading and writing.

They are very eager to learn to read and write. We are in a Dual Language classroom. We are located in a large, urban district. Our inner city school is in a very high need community.

My Project

The resources I have selected are a mobile easel and magnetic letters. The easel has a magnetic, write and wipe surface on each side. One side is lined to model writing. The blank side would be used to demonstrate spelling concepts (for example, learning word families, consonant-vowel high frequency words, etc.) The magnetic letters would be stored on the bottom shelf for easy reach. The easel is also low enough for the children to use without a stepping stool. It would also be used as a Spelling Center in which the students would be able to manipulate the magnetic letters to form words and towards the end of the year write simple sentences independently.

My students are just beginning their academic life.

Learning to read and write is crucial to my kindergarten students. Reading and writing are essential to their success in school. These resources would benefit my students because it would provide another means for them to practice reading and writing skills on a daily basis. Please support my project. Eager, young minds are counting on you.
