Learning To Read Is Fun!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Learning should be FUN, especially when you are five! I teach full day Kindergarten at a Title 1 school to 26 wonderful kids, most of whom are English Language Learners.

I work in a high poverty area and we are lacking the hands -on materials needed to enhance the learning process. In Kindergarten, hands-on learning is crucial for the development of reading and writing.

The Kindergarten students need educational games and activities to help them become proficient in the letters and sounds of the alphabet and even begin to read. We need resources, including: alphabet and word puzzles, language activity centers and word building centers. Using these literacy resources in my kinder classroom will most definitely increase my students' academic achievement. They will improve their literacy skills and be on their way to becoming high achieving readers and writers.

Your help will ensure that my students have fun, hands on experiences to enhance their early reading skills. The games, puzzles and activities that I am requesting will enrich the learning for the students in my class. Best of all these materials will be used for many years, so your contribution will have a far-reaching impact on the students in my school and community.
