My Students

I teach at a Title I school with a mosaic of diverse learners in Los Angeles, California. Our school has a little over 500 students. The kids learn more when physically and artistically active, and I do not want them to miss these activities due to the lack of materials.

My goal is to create a well-rounded experience for our enthusiastic and tenacious little learners!

I want the students to be eager to come to school each and every day, excited to learn!

My Project

A quick, easy way to introduce CVC words, sight-words. Students just draw an inner-tube card, read the word aloud and keep the card if they read it correctly…or start again if they draw a “Splash!”

Fun-to-solve crosswords help children master CVC words—hands on!

Kids look at the picture clues on the activity mats, sound out the missing words, then build them with the letter tiles.

These games develops skills in isolating and pronouncing initial, medial vowel and final sounds in CVC words and spoken single-syllable words; distinguishing long from short vowel sounds in spoken single-syllable words; and distinguishing long and short vowels when reading regularly spelled one-syllable words.
