Learning That Letters Make Words

My students need one set of 3-Letter Word Builders, one set of 4-Letter Word Builders, and three sets of Twist & Turn Phonics Word Builders.

I teach at a large school in North Carolina where we have a diverse population of children. About one-third of my students are learning English as their second language.

My reading block class consists of students who are on the pass/fail bubble and are in need of extra help. It is my responsibility to work with each child on his/her individual ability level in order to help them grow as a reader.

I would like to provide my students an alternative way to develop their reading skills. I found the following fabulous resources to help them: 3-Letter Word Builders, 4-Letter Word Builders, and Twist & Turn Phonics Word Builders. The students will be able to form word after word with fun-to-use word builders. They will just turn the permanently attached beads to sound out words letter by letter—from simple words to 4-letter words that include blends, digraphs & more. The students will be able to build words and phonics skills sound by sound! The word builders will also provide the students focused practice with beginning, ending, and long/short vowel sounds. The best part is that the students will be having so much fun making new words that they will forget that they are also learning.

With your support, you can make a difference in my students' lives and together we can make every student successful. Thank you!
