As a first grade teacher, my most important goal is to teach every child in my class how to read and write. This is the biggest task any teacher must face, but making reading fun and engaging is a challenge in itself. In my classroom of 25 students there is a very diverse population. Some students are part of a special education program, some are English Language Learners, and every student has a different learning style and is at a different level. Every child, no matter what their special need is, will benefit from my Literacy Centers. In order to help ALL my students with their phonics in a fun and engaging way, I would like to have a Word Study and Phonics Center where they can use manipulatives and games to become better readers and writers. I want to make this literacy center engaging by providing an opportunity for hands on activities, in order to learn and practice important skills. The specific materials from Lakeshore Learning that I am requesting are: *Phonics Learning Games Set *Phonics Magnets - Level 1 (Complete Set) *Phonics Magnets - Level 2 (Complete Set) *White Magnetic Boards My students and I thank you for your time and consideration.
