Playing Around with the ABC's

Help me give my students the opportunity to use different objects to create letters as they are learning letter formation! I have the letter formation mats but no manipulatives to use to actually MAKE the letters.

My Students

Hi! I provide Title I reading services to struggling students in Kindergarten- 5th grade. The students at our school are absolutely amazing and work so hard every day! They want to learn and my goal is to provide as many opportunities as possible.

My goal is to make my classroom a safe learning environment in which my students are set up for success in reading.

Let's provide multiple opportunities for learning to take place so that each student has the fortuity to be successful!

My Project

I am asking for Play-Doh and Wikki Stix to give my students another way to learn letter formation. Research has proven that hands-on manipulation can help student learning. It makes each letter/object more concrete while they learn how to form a given letter.

I have requested 2 sets of Play-Doh so that it will last a very long time.

As well as a class set of wikki stix because these don't typically dry out very easy. Please consider helping my little ones as they learn how to form a letter in a more concrete manner! Thank you!
