Getting Involved in Reading and Writing

My students need magnetic letters, write and wipe boards and pockets, and a magnetic write and wipe surface in order to interact with their learning.

My Students

Research shows that students learn more when they are actively engaged in what they are learning. The students will be using these materials to get involved with learning reading and writing skills.

My students are struggling readers and writers that receive intensive instruction in these areas.

They are students with learning disabilities that make it difficult to learn in traditional ways, and need fun, engaging activities to help them learn. Having engaging activities will increase their participation and that will increase the amount of information that they retain.

My Project

With your generosity, these students will have access to high interest materials to use for reading and writing. They will learn how to build words with magnets, learn proper letter formation and learn how to write complete sentences. They will learn how to collaborate and work in groups when working at an easel that is just the right height for them. These materials will make learning an active process and the students will be more likely to retain the information that they are learning.

Your donation will help these students get engaged in their learning in a way that is otherwise very difficult.

Getting involved in their learning will help them to retain information and give them a better chance to be successful in their classroom.
