My Students

The students in my class are energetic five- and six-years-old. They love to play to learn and they learn best by seeing, hearing, saying, and doing things.

The students in my class don't always have the experiences other children do.

Most come from a lower socioeconomic background. They do not always have the experiences other children have.

I strive to give my students every opportunity to have fun and learn. I want them to love to learn and to start off their school years in a fun way.

My Project

I love to have fun with my students. We learn by doing! I like for my students to have as many hands-on activities as I can. They love to explore things and discuss things with each other. Their social development increases if they are talking with each other in learning teams. They will learn important reading skills and also be learning to share, take turns and get along.

These activities will give me new ways to help my students learn about beginning and ending sounds and will give them much needed practice with sight words.

My students need as much practice as they can get to be great readers! Knowing their sight words fluently, will help them be better readers. The requested sight word puzzles will give them a fun way to practice reading them.

Phonemic awareness is critical for young readers. Children need to be able to hear the sounds in words. We will use the beginning and ending sound activities to help them develop the ability to hear and isolate those sounds.
