Hi. I am a veteran New York City Public School teacher. I have taught in East Harlem, New York for the past ten years. Through the years the department of education in New York City has gone through many different Reading, Writing and Math Curricula. No matter the changes there has always been one component that works for struggling readers. That component is phonics. Phonics programs break down words so the struggling reader can understand the structure and meaning of a word. Instead of memorizing sight words students understand why words are written and pronounced a certain way making learning easier. This is why I am asking for phonics materials for my 26 second graders. My class is made up of 26 bright second graders who love to read and write. However, there is a group among them who struggles with keeping up. This doesn't stop them from trying or from wanting to read and write. I am certain that phonics materials will help these few achieve their goal of meeting second grade standards in all areas. I want all of my students to be successful and not fall behind or feel less intelligent than their classmates. Developing their phonics skills will allow for improvement in reading and writing. Phonics isn't only for the struggling few. No. Those students who are meeting standards can receive enrichment through a phonics program too. I have high expectations for my students and believe that if they are challenged they will excel. Using a phonics program with the entire class will help them reach and surpass those expectations and better prepare them for the Third grade too. I hope that you will consider this humble request. Thank you.
