Ms. Cunningham from Brentwood NY is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Oh Me, Oh My, Let's Learn Sight Words!

Help me give my students the ability to practice their sight words in various ways. Magnetic letters are a great way for them to stay engaged! Supplies like crayons, glue, and pencils are also needed in centers.

My Students

As a first grade bilingual teacher in a low income school on Long Island, my students face many challenges in and out of the classroom. My class is composed of twenty-six first graders, who are all English Language Learners. Together we are trying to create strong foundations in their native language, Spanish, in order to help with learning English. My students range from beginners to proficient in English.

My students are creative, intelligent, and eager to learn.

Each and every day my students walk in with smiles on their faces. They are so excited to learn new things and to become better readers and writers.

My Project

My students struggle to learn their sight words. By using magnetic letters they will be able to build their words in a hands-on manner. Also crayons, glue, and pencils will help us with our sight words center for various activities. Such as building the words using paper, rainbow writing, and writing the words in our stories!

Practicing sight words will help us be better readers!Sight word activity cards are also a fun and new engaging way for my students to practice their words.

These cards will help them identify the sight word and practice using it in simple sentences.
