Magnetic Magic and O for Organization!

My students need magnetic letters to practice building and making words independently. It's a great way to build their reading skills.

My Students

My classroom of 25 students is a part of a school that serves around 95% of its student population with the free and reduced lunch program. Our Title I school is populated with about 530 students of different cultural, racial, and ethnic backgrounds. My class consists of students who identify themselves as Asian, Black, Latino (Latinx), Bi-racial and White. Within each grade level of our school we have two classrooms that cluster English language learning students and two classroom that cluster students with special needs. My classroom services the students with special needs within a general education classroom. Also, half of my students that receive services from our school's ESL department.

My Project

These literacy games and kinesthetic materials will allow my students to practice their letter identification, sound recognition and sight words during our literacy block.

These magnetic letters will make tasks more engaging for my students.

The magnetic dry erase will provide opportunities for learning new vocabulary as well.

The storage bins will continue the organization that is vital to our classroom environment. My students deserve to have a space that is inviting and organized. Many of my students call my classroom their second home.

Your donation will help instill a love for literacy in my students and help them to "close the gap."
