Mrs. Kittrell from Norfolk VA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading Centers

My students need games and activities that focus on supporting and reinforcing reading and skills taught in the classroom. The Sight Word puzzles and Learning Sight Words Activity Chest will help students with learning sight words.

My Students

I teach at an inner-city Title I School, where all of my children receive free breakfast and free lunch. I teach twenty 1st graders. They face hardships that they encounter at home. Many are from broken homes where there is only one parent, severe family illnesses or their siblings/guardians are their caretakers.

My first graders are so much fun, energetic, playful, and oh, so curious.

They show up at school always optimistic about the day, despite any extra challenges that many of them face outside of school. For that reason, these students deserve to feel like their education matters. This year funds are scarce and supplies are limited, however, the need to succeed is necessary.

My Project

I want to create a classroom where my students are learning ways to read in a variety of ways. Students will use Sight Word games and puzzles during our whole group time, small group time, and learning center time. The games we want to include are sight word recognition puzzles, blends and digraph puzzles, and a final e-learning center.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.

Please help my new 1st-grade student engage in fun activities to start the school year.
