I am a first grade teacher in an Inclusion classroom in the West Farms section of the Bronx. My school is in a high needs area, and 99% of our children receive free lunches. My class consists of approximately 60% general education students and 40% special education students. One skill that most students, both general and special education, are lacking, is phonemic awareness. This is the ability to differentiate sounds and then put them back together to form words, and it is essential to beginning readers. In the past, I have found that my students do especially well when they are working with their hands--this keeps them motivated and makes it easier for them to learn. A Phonics Kit would be an excellent addition to my literacy curriculum, mainly because it provides activities that allow for hands-on learning. Some of the supplies in this kit include board games, puzzle cards, letter cubes, and flip books, in addition to many other activities. Part of our day involves the students working in learning centers with other children at their level, and the supplies in this kit would be so helpful during that time period. I am certain that each of the 25 students in my class would benefit from this phonics kit, because all of the supplies included would help them with their beginning reading skills. Thank you for considering this proposal.
