I am the teacher in a first grade gifted classroom at P.S. 251 in Brooklyn, New York. I have 24 children in my class. We are a Title I, early-childhood center. Approximately seventy-five percent of our students receive free lunch. Six of the students in my class live in shelters or in foster care. Of the children in my classroom many are lacking basic language and aren't too verbal. These children, as well as the others in my classroom all benefit from hands on opportunities in the area of reading and phonics study. Allowing them to use a variety of materials during center time gives the exposure to language and sharpens there reading skills. Technology in reading such as leap pad learning systems provides opportunities for speech, and vocabulary which would greatly benefit my students who have language or verbal deficits. Objects such as a Leap Pads, Leapster and the learning leap system would not only teach new vocabulary, but act as another form of learning sight words and learning to read. A donation of Leap Pads, Leapster and the learning leap system would create such opportunities for the students in my first grade class. Thank You.
