My Students

I teach first Grade at a Title I elementary school. Many of my adorable 6 year old students come from disadvantaged backgrounds, and many of them don't have early exposure with books or reading that they need to succeed in the classroom.

These young students are just beginning to see the magic and excitement that learning and reading can bring to them!

I work hard as their teacher to love them and teach them the best that I can. Many of them come from backgrounds where school isn't a priority in their family, they don't speak English, they move around a lot due to military positions, and several have special learning needs that need to be taken into account in the classroom.

Despite the backgrounds that they come with, they work hard at school and I love to see their faces light up when they learn something new and they understand it! What can I say? These students of mine make coming to work every day easy!

My Project

These materials will give my students the practice that they need with letter sounds and building words. They will LOVE to play these games in small groups and help each other practice their reading skills without even realizing how much learning they are really doing - they'll be having so much fun!

Kids learn through play, and these games will provide reading practice while letting the kids have a blast at the same time.

They will love "popping the dice" and using the letters to build and then read other words. They will also love using the magnetic sight-word sentence board to practice writing their letters. Instead of a "drill and kill" method with reading and writing, the kids will WANT to play these games, and they will also learn valuable skills at the same time.
