Gearing Up for Pre K Success

My students need hands-on early literacy and math games.

My Students

Our classroom is always busy busy! The teachers and students are always working hard to prepare for Kindergarten!

There are fifteen students in our Pre Kindergarten inclusion classroom.

All of the students are receiving Pre K services because they are behind in some way. Three of the students have disabilities such as Autism and Down Syndrome. The school is a high poverty public elementary school that goes from Pre K-Fifth grade.

My Project

These materials would be highly beneficial for my students to have in the classroom. We would be using all of the math and literacy games and activities during center time, small groups, and song, word, and letter play. This Pre K program is an early intervention program. So, all of the students need a lot of engaging, hands-on activities in order to learn how to count, identify numbers and letters, learn beginning sounds, rhyming, patterning, and sorting. These materials would provide the students with fun ways to learn early literacy and math concepts.

Donations to this project will greatly improve my classroom by allowing me to differentiate my instruction and activities in order to meet the academic needs of all of my students.

My students would be engaged and remain engaged while using these fun, hands on games and activities.
