Learning Through Hands-on Manipulatives

Help me give my students hands on manipulatives to work on letter identification, CVC words, and learning to build and work together through play!

My Students

Inquisitive, eager, silly and compassionate are just a few of the words I can think of to describe my "ball full of energy" class of kindergartners! Each one has their own unique personality, but one thing they all have in common is their drive to learn something new every single day.

Almost all children are on free or reduced price breakfast and lunch and yearn to come to school to absorb any and all things they can, because most do not get any sort of educational stimulation at home.

We don't just come to school to learn; we come to school to care for each other and become better human beings at the same time! We learn manners and life skills right along our educational skills. I hope to not only build smart kiddos, but extraordinary human beings!

My Project

I am anxious to put several of these items in centers for students to be able to independently work on letters, letter sounds, CVC words, learning to read words while not realizing they are learning.

Magnatiles and PlayStix will allow my kids to learn, build, and play by using their imaginations!

Not only will they be playing and learning, but they will be practicing fine motor skills.

I will be incorporating these items into STEM activities for the kids to be creative and use teamwork and higher levels of thinking to accomplish a specific outcome. Thank you for your support!
