My Students

My students are between the ages of six and eight. They are just starting their school experience and they all have a great love of learning.

This age group requires visuals, small group, and differentiated instruction as well as the use of manipulatives.

Many of these students are struggling with mastering the basic foundational skills needed to succeed, not only academically, but socially and emotionally as well. It is important to provide hands-on manipulatives and real-life materials to help them learn the skill they need to master.

Every student learns through different modalities and it is important to provide a rich environment that is a component of the curriculum.

My Project

Phonemic awareness is the ability to hear, identify, and manipulate individual sounds and phonemes in spoken words. Before children learn to read print, they need to become more aware of how the sounds in words work.

Phonemic awareness is important because it is the primary predictor of early reading and spelling skills in kindergarten through 2nd grade.

This mystery box is a fun and interactive way to help students learn the alphabet sounds by reinforcing letter sounds as they match the miniature toys with the appropriate letter of the alphabet.

Children just reach inside our mystery box and discover kid-pleasing miniatures for every letter of the alphabet. Perfect for independent practice and comes with 26 miniatures plus a game board printed with uppercase letters.

Alphabet letter and sound recognition can be easily mastered with hands-on rockets that make language practice a blast. Each double-sided rocket features 3 easy-fitting pieces that show the upper- and lowercase letter, plus 4 pictures that represent the letter sound. Kids just match up the pieces to build each rocket by boosting letter recognition and exploring letter sounds as they play.
