Mrs. Mixon from N Charleston SC is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

HANDS DOWN, learning Letters & Sounds HANDS-ON is awesome!

My students need Alphabet Sounds Teaching Tubs!

  • $226 goal

This project expired on January 10, 2015.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Research has proven that young children learn best through hands-on activities and these tubs are simply perfect! These tubs not only help children learn letters and letter sounds, but also help develop their vocabulary and makes learning new words fun and easy!!

My class consists of 14 curious and excited 4 year olds who love school and love learning!

They walk in the door everyday with a smile on their face and ready to learn! 95% of the students at my school are from single parent, low socioeconomically homes who receive free or reduced lunch.

My Project

I will use the Alphabet Sounds Teaching Tubs to not only teach letters and letter sounds, but to help develop their vocabulary and make learning new words fun and easy! I strive to make learning fun and know my students would absolutely love to explore the objects in the tubs! They are a great teaching tool to meet all children's individual learning styles, as well. I will introduce our letter of the week using the objects from the tubs. The tubs will be perfect for learning sounds and having students match the letters to the right items. I could use them for sorting and matching games. These Alphabet Sounds Teaching Tubs can be used for whole group, small group, or ABC center...the possibilities are endless!!

Donations will allow my students to master all letter sounds and letter identification.

They will also broaden their vocabulary by exploring with objects they have never seen or have never been exposed to!
