My students are a group of transitional kindergartners and kindergartners who are becoming great leaders through our leadership program and are very enthusiastic about learning.
They are very curious about the world and are intrigued by the simplest things in the world.
My students attend a wonderful small school in southern California. We are a diverse group of students consisting of English learners, various cultures, and learning abilities. We are a high achieving school yet economically challenged. Funding is very limited at school due to our size.
How do you excite young learners to learn how to read? Well, one way is, with games! Children love learning when it is tied to some sort of play. As I teach my students, I am always looking for activities where there is some sort of hands-on work.
These materials will help replace aging materials as well as bring new activities to my students’ learning.
As a Kindergarten teacher, I teach in small groups and I am looking for materials where my students can self-check their work. Many of these materials do that. The interactive pens and learning cards will help my students self-check their answers. The pens are somehow tied to these cards and it will correct their responses by saying encouraging word. The puzzles will help them sound out words and check if they built their words correctly. The sorting materials are actual objects instead of pictures. This is a fun way to learn and will especially help my English learners with vocabulary development as well as my tactile learners, who love to touch and feel.
I hope you can fulfill our project and excite my students to learn how to read!
