Help me give my students an easy, accessible way to learn phonics to go from non-readers to readers.
I am fortunate and honored to support the learning of children in an urban community. My students love to learn and have a thirst for knowledge. What makes my school special is the emphasis on the Montessori method.
Meeting the needs of the children I serve is the goal and focus in our Montessori environment.
It is remarkable to observe the social/emotional and academic growth of the children that enter the classroom each day with curiosity and enthusiasm.
My students are developing the skills to dream big and create their own possibilities. They are life-long learners.
Students will use these amazing hands on materials to internalize the foundational skills necessary to become confident and life long readers.
Students will begin their reading journey by sorting and blending sounds together.
Once the children have mastered these skills, reading sentences and phrases will spur them on to becoming early competent readers.
Studies have shown that most children learn concepts by the use of tactile materials. The sand trays will satisfy the child’s natural desire to touch and create words and demonstrate knowledge.
Students will revel in working with these materials in small groups, independently, and during guided reading lessons.
