My Students

I teach Pre-k at at a Title I school in Virginia. I have 18 students who come from varied backgrounds. My students often have limited access to learning materials. My students come to school excited each day to learn something new. They love to create and test new ideas daily. We are in need of materials for students to be able to engineer, create, and use critical thinking skills. Thank you for supporting our classroom! We truly appreciate your support!

My Project

Letter recognition is one of the most important skills that young students can practice and gain while in pre-k. Being able to recognize and name the letters of the alphabet is an essential building block of literacy and one of the first skills that children develop and learn as beginning readers. While we focus heavily on alphabet recognition in class, it is important that the practice and growth continue outside of school.

Through items such as dry erase boards, dough and wikki sticks, we will be able to put together take home ABC bags that will make learning the alphabet fun for our students and their families.

Students will be able to engage and interact not only with letters but also with their families as they work together to build the letters of the alphabet, go on scavenger hunts, practice writing their letters and learning their sounds, as well playing matching and memory games. Not only will these take home bags include the items that have been requested, but also games and interactive activities that can be completed at any time for additional practice.
