My Students

My students are from a small, rural community and attend a small K-8 school. Our school is its own district of approximately 180 students. One of the most amazing facts about the school I teach at is it happens to be the same school I graduated from, and also my dad before me. The building/campus I teach in is the same one I attended way back when!

In a way, so much has changed and at the same time; the students are just the same.

They are lively, energetic, and love to learn! Our school might be small and our budget is too, but that does not mean I do not strive to give my students the very best of everything they need to make their learning experience the best I can. This way their love of learning can be met with the resources they need. With this DonorsChoose.org project, I will be one step closer to offering my students a comfortable and inviting place to learn.

My Project

This project is for a set of early-lit centers hands-on tools that will reinforce skills that my students need additional practice on. These VersaTiles will allow students to practice skills to help them grow in skills that will make them better readers, and stronger writers, while at the same time letting them enjoy the activity through learning games.

My students desire to learn however, they need the tools and extra practice to reinforce these skills.

The VersaTiles would be a powerful tool that would allow them to practice vocabulary, comprehension, phonics, and fluency to name a few. These tiles would be a great addition to our classroom if this project were to be funded.
