Hooray! This project is fully funded

THANK YOU for taking the time to read our proposal! The children coming into my Kindergarten classroom in September will be so delighted that you did. They may not know it yet, but they are in for a year of tremendous learning and excitement. One of the core areas that is taught in the very important Kindergarten years is the letter names and sounds (the good old ABC's). Unfortunately we do not have the skills practice that is necessary to give the students the visual, kinesthetic, and repetitive support they need. This is done very well through skills practice books (workbooks). I am starting my eighth year at P.S.8, located in the heart of the Washington Heights community. This community is made up of mostly Hispanic families with English being the second language. Due to the fact that many of my children come into my classroom with minimum English experience, it is even more vital that they have many experiences with the language and they practice not only in school but at home with the letter names and sounds. This foundation is necessary for the children to move on to reading and writing. I have been formally trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching reading, writing, and spelling. This approach has made a great impact on my students. However, we are missing essential resources such as workbooks, manipulatives, learning centers and visuals. We are asking for your help and support to fund games, visuals, and centers that the children can work in independently. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
