Mrs. Fagnano from Germantown MD is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Phonetics Sound Manipulatives

Help me give my students the opportunities to practice their phonetics skills. The alphabet sound tubs would be very useful for real life materials with each beginning sounds. The Beanbag chair would be great for their reading center.

My Students

Our school is very diverse and most students come from a low socioeconomic background. My students need the opportunity to use their imaginations, while they are with their peers. My students are kindergartens with a lot more to learn and these are some of their first experiences with school. The students are enthusiastic and ready to start a brand new year in kindergarten and I would like them to be able to enjoy their experience while they are in my classroom.

My Project

Please help my students have opportunities to practice their phonetics skills. The alphabet sound tubs would be very useful for real life materials with each beginning sounds. This will be great to teach the students the letter sounds. They would be able to touch objects and it would be helpful for my students learning a second language to see items that would be familiar to them.

The Beanbag chair would be great for their reading center.

They currently have small rocking chairs that tip over to easy and are uncomfortable. I would like to make my reading center more comfortable and inviting for the students.
