Ms. Kim from New York NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Phonological Foundation Skills

Help me give my students phonological (sounds) and phonemic awareness skills. These are pre-literacy skills they urgently need to become skilled readers!

My Students

The vibrant Lower East Side attracts people from all around the world and my students reflect that diversity. They, and their families, are from all over the world. However, the majority of the children live in high-poverty homes. Some live in the projects and some live in the local homeless shelters.

Resources to help them do exist.

There are three after school enrichment programs in the school building. The school offers dance, art-studio in a school, and music to every child.

My Project

One of the biggest misconceptions is that as a speech therapist in the NYC public schools, I teach articulation (speaking) skills all day long. The majority of my time is spent on literacy and language comprehension (expressive and receptive) goals. For some of my youngest kiddos, in preK to 1st grade, the struggle to learn the sounds of the alphabet is enormous. These manipulatives will aid in developing the pre-literacy skills they will need to become skilled decoders, or phonics users, so that one day they can be skilled readers. The alphabet sound tubs will make working on the sound system enjoyable as they discover the cool objects inside each one. The phonemic awareness sets will carry over those skills in identifying rhyming, first and last sounds in words. These are foundation skills in learning to read and many of the kids I work with don't have them.
