My Students

Games or reading...why does it always have to be a choice?

Schools are no longer centered around paper and pencil activities, and many of my students are struggling readers who need academic support.

Having adequate resource materials to pull from is an essential part of the teaching/preparation and planning process. As a teacher I need quick and easy access to these materials, and I need to have them available in my classroom for my students.

My Project

My goal is to create Literacy centers that have educational value, and are engaging to students by using "Hot Dots Cards." With the use of these literacy games I have requested, I will be able to set up learning centers where students can engage in meaningful skill building activities. These learning games will allow me to adapt my reading program to meet each students needs and interests.

It is my job to help my students become excited about learning.

You can help me do this by contributing to my project. My students need these Hot Dots to compliment their lessons. When they press a correct answer they will hear words of encouragement from the "talking" pen. This is the kind of positive reinforcement that children respond to and, with repeated play-and-practice, leads to mastery. Thank you for helping make that happen!
