Mrs. Tribuzio from Bronx NY is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Interactive Sight Word Kits

Help me give my students activities to help them retain sight words they are learning. These sight word books, letter boards and student learning centers are engaging activities that assist my students learning by using all of their modalities.

My Students

I teach low-income, multi-handicapped Special Education students in the Bronx New York. My students are 8 to 10 years old but many function at a Kindergarten level. Many of my students do not have workbooks at home to continue practicing their skills. Many depend on individualized learning packets and adapted worksheets made by the teacher. Despite the hardships they are facing with school being closed, they are eager learners. They need activities that reinforce building and attaining sight word practice and use.

When our school closed in March due to Covid-19, my students were immediately put at a disadvantage compared to their typical peers.

They need hands-on materials to support their learning to keep their learning moving forward. Many have iPads for learning and some are still waiting for iPads for distance learning. In the meantime, I have been creating adapted materials for my students, mailing them to those who need it, and teaching online for those who are available in Google Classroom.

My Project

My students do not have access to many materials during this unexpected school closure. All of our materials are at school and I am unable to gain access. My Google classroom has become our new home for learning. Teaching virtually has become challenging at best. Many of the materials I am asking for are magnetic. I can use my magnetic board for the sight word materials as I teach online. My students are hands-on learners and need games and interactive activities that are motivating and fun.

My students need to be involved in an activity using all of their senses.

These interactive games, books and magnetic sentences will add to my individualized sight word activities. These materials included in this project will help me teach virtually. Using the sight word activity centers, my students can follow along with me and interact in the lesson. I will also be able to use it with future classes in the classroom during small group instruction.
