Ms. Zuniga from Jackson MI is requesting educational kits & games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

That's What Good Readers Do!

Help me give my students flashcards and activities that will help them build their literacy skills so that they will become better readers. These items will strengthen their knowledge in phonics and provide literacy scaffolding.

My Students

My students are in grades 3 through 5. For the most part, they are from low-income areas. Generally, they do not come from homes with parents who are educated past high school. Some students come from homes where English is not their first language. Others come from difficult and stressful family situations.

My students WANT to learn, but a huge challenge is our lack of resources.

I don't have the literacy manipulatives and interactive materials needed to help them improve their literacy skills.

Flashcards, whiteboards, and other manipulatives would greatly enhance the ability of my students to practice their phonics and other strategies for reading.

My Project

My students will use these supplies to help them be successful in building their literacy skills. Most concerning is that some of my 3rd grade students are non-readers! My older students also lack essential skills for processing textual information.

With these essential literacy tools, my students will excel in their efforts to become amazing readers and writer.

Most of the materials I have in my classroom are NOT manipulatives, and the workbooks become monotonous and do not motivate students.

Using manipulatives such as flashcards and other activities motivates students to achieve success and meet their goals for reading and writing.
