Mrs. Taylor from Riverton UT is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading, Writing and Pretending in Kindergarten!

Help me give my students learning opportunities that are appropriate for Kindergarteners. Kindergartners love to pretend and use hands-on materials. They will practice reading and writing skills using hands on materials. Thank you!

My Students

I have awesome students who are beginning to read and write. They are excited to learn and excited to use their developing skills. They are always in need of materials and tools to help them become better readers, writers and mathematicians!

My students are in need of items to encourage them in their developing skills.

I like to use items that "trick" them into using their skills. Beginning writers and readers often get stuck and think they can't do it. I want them to realize that they can do it and enjoy it in the process!

My Project

These materials will engage students in authentic learning experiences and will make learning fun and exciting for them!

I am excited to see the students excitement for new materials and items for our classroom!

My students will increase their reading and writing skills by using their skills in a fun way. We will practice reading and math skills as we use pretend play in the alphabet grocery items. Students will also work on motor skills, alphabet skills and be excited to use their developing skills in a real way. I find that "tricking" students to use their skills makes it fun for them and they increase skills by using these items in real world settings!
