Mrs. Alvarez from Philadelphia PA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

¡Soy Muy Inteligente!

My students need many hands-on experiences that make learning more meaningful to them. These Spanish alphabet learning tubs will give my students the opportunity to fulfill the kinesthetic importance of their learning.

My Students

All of my students are between the ages of 3 to 5, and the majority of them speak another language other than English at home, and all are in a Head Start program or Pre-K Counts.

Preschool is supposed to be the time of your life.

This is a time to play all day, sleep all night, and.nap in between. Learning involves toys, toys, and more toys, with books and friends mixed in there.

With funds being tight; teaching has been very difficult when there lacks teaching materials in the classroom. Our students, our future leaders, should not have to suffer the lack of “toys” and learning material. What fun is that?

My Project

My students are preschoolers, so they are hands-on learners by nature. With majority of my students being bilingual, Spanish being either their first or second language, these learning materials will enhance their understanding of their native language and teach them new words as well. My students are taught Spanish letter/sound weekly in a formal setting - circle and centers. These Spanish Letter Learning bins will give my students the opportunity to see, hold, and literally grasp the letter sound ideas in Spanish. They will “play” and learn with the letter sound objects in their learning centers in both child- and teacher-directed activities, as well as engage in large group.
