My Project

Research has shown us the importance of systematic, explicit instruction in developing strong readers. The resources this project will provide me align directly with the Science of Reading. They will help my students strengthen both their phonological awareness and phonics skills, which are both essential in reading development.

Reading is more fun when you know how.

My goal as a teacher is to provide students with explicit, engaging instruction that they will carry with them forever. These materials will align and strengthen our newly adopted phonics program CKLA and can be used in both small groups and whole group.

The Teachers Pay Teachers gift card will allow me to purchase a variety of paper decodable books. These books, the Building Book Sets and The Yak Pack books will allow my students to read engaging decodable books at their level and strengthen the work we are doing during phonics in class. With the word mapping paddles, the Roll a Word Dice, the Phonics Dominoes, the Word Ladder book and the hands on objects my students will practice their phonics skills of breaking apart words, putting words together and decoding and encoding.

Please help me in making this project come to life as I build one rockstar reader at a time!
