Mrs. Lenker from San Pedro CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

I'd Like to Buy a Vowel

My students need learning games that teach long vowels. The Magnetic Long Vowels Word Building Board will help them to learn long vowel patterns.

My Students

My students are excited to learn about the world around them! They actively seek out knowledge through books, television, internet, and each other! It is exciting to see my students reading and sharing books with their classmates about non fiction topics.

" There's a part of me that's always charging ahead.

I'm the curious kid, always going to the edge."- Yo-Yo Ma

That is exactly what we need to encourage in our students. We need to provide experiences to open their eyes, brain and imagination to the whole world! It is my charge to provide them a multitude of opportunities to whet their curiosities.

My Project

As a part of our balanced literacy program the students spend thirty minutes daily learning phonics. My students will love playing Keeper of the Castle: Long Vowel Games. They will think they are playing, but I will know that they will be learning long vowels! All of the materials requested are long vowel learning games.

Learning should be fun!

These games will help my first grade students enjoy learning the letter sounds. Hands on materials are very motivating to students. Small groups of children will be able to work with a teacher as they are guided through the different long vowel sounds.
