Mrs. Struthers from Castle Rock CO is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hands on Word Work!

My students need magnetic letters and trays to enhance their reading skills during word work. Having the letters will give the students a hands on experience to manipulate words for a deep understanding of words.

My Students

As a teacher at a low-income school, my students come to me with many challenges. They do not have access to all of the materials needed to be successful members of society. My goal is to give them meaningful experiences that will not only help them in school, but in life.

My students are creative and innovative thinkers.

They work together to solve problems and become better 21st Century Learners. All they need are the supplies to continue on their academic path.

My Project

These magnetic letters and trays will be used by every student in our school. As we are becoming stronger in literacy practices, our students need access to the materials to have a hands on experience during word work.

Students will be engaged and having fun while learning how to manipulate words.

This will look different in every grade level. Our primary students are learning their letters and how to set up basic words and word patterns. Our intermediate grade will be learning word parts and being able to change out prefixes and suffixes. No matter the age or reading level, our students will have a better learning experience.
