My Students

Do you remember sitting at your desk in school listening to your teacher lecture? These days we know students need a variety of teaching methods to motivate them.

My first grade students are a very caring group of kids.

They love to learn and are very kinesthetic learners. Therefore, they need material presented in such a manner that will keep them engaged. Reading instruction is the biggest block of instruction during the day. They need an assortment of engaging material to keep them focused.

My Project

The resources I am requesting are a variety of reading games. All of the games will reinforce the skills taught during our reading block. The games include skills on:syllables, sight words, blending, and sounds. I know these games will keep my students motivated and engaged.

This project is so important to me because I know how important reading is to my students' future success in their education.

I know these games will help to reinforce their basic skills in reading, while keeping their interest's peaked!
