My Students

I teach at a Title one school where the majority of students come from homes with high poverty. My students are so excited about school and love learning new things! I strive to give them the best tools to succeed. It is my goal to provide the best educational experience I can for them!

"The expert in anything was once a beginner" ~Helen Hayes.

My students need to be able to see, listen and do in order to learn at their highest potential. I want my students to be more prepared and successful in their future school endeavors.

My Project

Every day my students come to school ready to learn. They work hard in small groups and are learning so many new skills. This project would allow my students to continue to work on phonological awareness and word families during flex groups. Having these extra activities would allow my students to practice reading on their own or with a partner and be engaged while doing so. These materials will help my struggling students to become better readers.

We are requesting these materials to make learning words and reading more engaging.

The Build-A-Word! Magnet Board - 3-Letter Words, 3-Letter Word Building Puzzles, and Word Families' flip books would great to help align the student center activities with the whole group, small groups and independently.
