My Students

My students love school and love to learn. They love to use different materials that they haven't seen or tried before, these activities would make their day every time they get to use them. Kids really do learn through PLAY and what better way to learn than using these educational toys!

My students are absolutely amazing, no matter what their home lives maybe like.

They come to school everyday with an awesome and exciting attitude towards school and learning. All they want to do is learn and how to read and write better, I can't ask for more than that from them. Our school is a title 1 school where most of the children are FARM(Free and Reduced Meals), the population is nearly 85% Hispanic students and the ESOL percentage for my class is the same at 85%. Most are able to speak English well, but also it is not their language of choice at home. So it is new to them and hard at times to express thoughts and ideas. But like I said before they work very hard and do the best they can.

My Project

These amazing fun materials will help my students become more fluent readers by learning their letter sounds, word families, digraphs and vowels. These are critical phonics needs when reading for children. All of these materials will also be improving their writing skills and confidence tremendously. Because if they are able to read it, we also are then able to write it the best we can. Which builds huge confidence for students who are not sure about how to spell words they want to use in a story or sentence. The counties goal for Reading levels is only a 4 but in our school we strive for excellence and push for a level 10, because we hold high expectations for all students regardless of background. Thank you for taking the time to even read and consider making a donation to this wonderful group of students.

Thank you again for taking the time to consider making a donation to an amazing project for these students.

My students will be able to use these materials daily no matter the level. Because they range from beginning sounds, ending, middle sounds, and all the way through digraphs, vowels and blends which give them the toughest time. But with more practice comes an even greater reward for them as readers and writers to help them excel at the next level.
