O-C-T-E-F...What Word Did I Spell??

My project needs 14 writing and literact materials, including word building games, wipe off lined boards, rhyming activities, CVC word puzzles and many more exciting activities to develop early literacy and writing.

I enter my classroom everyday so excited to spend time with my excellent Pre-K classroom. My students come to school with a zest for learning each day. My Pre-K friends come from impoverished homes and have very few enriching academic experiences before starting school. Most of the classroom community is being exposed to english for the first time. I am truly very lucky to teach such wonderful children each day.

While my students enter excited to learn, they have learned to accept that we are often short of materials that are necessary for writing. As their teacher, I tirelessly try to improvise by staying late and making tools but the difference in quality is obvious to them. Our classroom is only in the second year of operation so our environment is sparse; more tools are always needed.

The resources we would benefit from include word building kits, wipe off boards for writing, word puzzles and games, and other literacy materials.

With your extremely generous donation of any amount, our classroom will be able to enter Kindergarten as strong writers ensuring our success later in life. My students will be able to get their message through to the world and share their thinking through writing at an age when they have so much creativity and knowledge to share.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
