My Students

My school is a rural, Title I school in Tennessee where poverty is high and experiences are limited. I serve 30 children in grades K-5 in an intensive intervention setting. These students are pushed every day to achieve high levels of academic excellence, and they work hard daily to achieve our rigorous expectations. My goal is to get the necessary materials to help them achieve their greatest potential. These children truly want to learn and work hard in my classroom to be successful students.

My Project

Students will be using the Wilson Phonics Fundations letter boards and magnetic letters to create words. These students are at least one grade level behind on skill development for reading so it is my goal to create multi-sensory lessons to help children learn quickly.

These magnetic letter sets from Wilson Phonics have proven to be sturdy and great quality as I have had some in my room for many years.

However, I have more children using them now and need more.

I am also requesting materials such as alphabet stamps, stamp pads, magnetic letter builders, alphabet games, and phonemic awareness games for these students to use during intervention classes. This will help my students to have some hands on learning so that they can get back on track with their reading skills. Thank you for any consideration of my project!
