Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am an educational assistant in a Bilingual special education class in a title one school in Brooklyn. The children I work with range from kindergarten up to grade two. Their special needs vary. Some have speech needs while others have greater learning disabilities and others have emotional needs. The room is a very dynamic eclectic place. I try to find ways to support the individual interests and needs of our small challenging group. My students are learning to read. Learning and remembering the letter names and their corresponding sounds is crucial. For many of my students short engaging activities are necessary. Many of my students cannot sit through long activities. Others need activities that allow peer support. For that reason I would love to get mastering phonics games library for our classroom. These games would be used everyday at choice time. My students would play and learn through partnerships as well as small groups. These games allow children to practice and master essential phonics skills. The games allow children to reinforce short and long vowels as well as provides opportunities for blending sounds. My students have the ability to master reading. Sometimes they need extra opportunities to practice and short engaging games to keep them on task. Special materials can make all the difference to my students and their special needs.
