My basic skills resource room is in need of materials for reading. I’m currently teaching a diverse group of students that range in age from Kindergarten to Second Grade that are at different levels of developmental skills. It is important that my students have access to supportive materials that will foster foundational skills for reading and writing workshops. My students are more engaged when they use manipulative for writing strategies. The students are more enthusiastic and confident when they can accomplish tasks that enable them to be more independent readers and writers.
Project Read is an exemplary diverse school-based program.The curriculum is tiered to meet the many different age groups. Each lesson uses these manipulative such as; felt paper, and tactile letters for the extended activities and guided practice, all of which foster the integration of knowledge that enables students to work more independently. The philosophy of Project Read supports student success fostering multi-sensory processing, systematic instruction, and higher level thinking skills. The curriculum allows students multiple points of entry into learning through body language and kinesthetic learning.
Project Read is also a solid phonics and reading curriculum that uses materials for engaging activities.
As a Basic Skills teacher I am requesting felt paper. Plus additional items needed like tactile uppercase, lowercase letters, word sliders, and dough mats that students can use to directly address visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile learning. Your support for this project will be greatly appreciated!
