It's Time To Read!

Help me give my students diversity of manipulatives. My students are struggling in reading because the last school year they were receiving online instruction and they did not have the opportunity to develop reading skills properly.

My Students

My class is second grade. Many of my students were receiving virtual instruction last school year because of COVID. At this time, it's really important provide hands-on activities to keep their minds actively engaged. Everyday we rotate through Reading and Math centers and they need effective materials and fun activities to help them to get their goals for the next grade. My students come from a low-income community and our school has a high migrant population and all of our students receive free lunch. The majority of incoming students in my class are stronger with Spanish, and need a bit more practice in English. I want to help my students providing the best possible learning experience for them here at school. I would love for all my students to be able to read in English and learn math with more confidence. They come excited and ready to learn everyday. And I always tell them the sky is the limit. So let's keep looking forward and striving for our goals.

My Project

My students are second graders. When they were finishing kindergarten schools lock down because the pandemic started. Last year they were in first grade but the instruction that they received was online.

My students need manipulatives such as magnetic letters and boards, letters stamps, letters and sounds games that help them to have hands on activities it will contribute to improve and develop their reading skills.

At this time, I'm been working hard teaching foundational reading skills because many of my kids weren't able to develop those skills the past school years. Phonological awareness is fundamental to build those skills necessaries to learn how to read.
