Reading is Fun!

My students need some additional practice with the basics of reading. These phonics games will help increase their learning to read through a fun game format.

My Students

First graders come to school filled with enthusiasm and excitement for learning, life, friends and interest. They are marked for tremendous growth, lost teeth, emotional highs and some lows as well. First graders jump into projects with both feet and whole heartily. My students are no different.

Their quest to understand the world and make sense of it comes with high energy.

My students backgrounds are rich in representing many different cultures and languages with one common purpose, to learn!

My school is 90% free and reduced price lunch. Our families are counting on us to educate their children and provide an education that will allow their students to be prepared for the future that awaits them.

My Project

Many of my students are coming to me not reading ready. It takes a lot of work to help them learn the letters, sounds and how they all blend together to make words! I would like to add some more games to our practice to keep our learning fresh, new and exciting.

Games are a great way to help students not only learn the content but basic elements of life as well.

Games teach patience, stamina, and a growth mindset to always keep trying. Phonics are a big part of learning to read and I would like to keep my students engaged as they learn.
