My students are from a diverse population of learners. My school is a Title I school with 80 percent of the students receiving free or reduced price lunch. My students are 6-7 years old from high poverty, high mobility area in which many parents work evenings. My school has a high population of ELLs as well as ESL learners. My students are also high risk learners. My students require a great deal engaging curriculum and play based items to motivate learning.
We know that play based learning is how to get students engaged in learning. Children learn best through play. I carefully selected these items to engage my students in the literacy and learning to read. Making learning fun with games will support the diverse needs of my students.
Purposeful or guided play is work that requires students to be engaged.
Student engagement and collaboration is one of the best ways to facilitate learning among children. These conversations will support language development, speech development, and social-emotional needs. My goal is to get students excited to come to school. Learning should be fun as students are problem solving through play.
I chose the letter kits so students will be able to practice and build sight words. Sight words are what helps us to learn how to read. The other literacy centers will help with beginning sounds, middle sounds, and ending sounds. These are some great resources to make reading FUN!
The pretend play restaurant kit is not only good for imaginary play, but also language development. These types of engaging tools will not only be helpful to an early reader, but also so much fun!
