Ms. D. from Norristown PA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Listen, Learn, and Write!

Help me give my students a fine motor experience that they will never forget. They will use the dry erase markers, boards, and the magnetic letters to learn letters and their names.

My Students

I work in a bilingual, ESL learning school. The children are 3-5 years old. I work in a low income families program.

The children are eager to learn through play.

We are working on basic social emotional skills and playing with others. Mathematics literacy and science. They use the creative curriculum and they are working on sharing, and improve fine motor skills to improve her writing. They also learn since and art. We are currently working on team building activities.

My Project

These dry erase markers, boards, and the magnetic letters will make a difference because these will help them be kindergarten-ready and have good fine motor skills. They will be able to recognize the letters and their names. They will also be able to spell their names and write them. If they all have their own, we can use them for large group activities and small group ones as well. I am looking forward to having them for the children to use and learn. The more hands-on that the children can be with letter recognition, the more they will remember what those letters are and then they are likely to write them.

We will be using the white boards and magnetic letters to teach the children how to write each letter and build their names.

They will use these to help them get kindergarten ready.
