The students at my school come from many diverse backgrounds and have much to share with those around them. Some of the children live within walking distance to the school and some of the kids come on a bus from a neighborhood about 15 minutes away. The richness of culture that these children bring to our learning community is priceless.
The students at my school are eager to grow into lifelong readers.
Many of them are at the beginning stages of embarking on unlocking the meaning of the written word.
Many of my students' strengths in the area of reading are in memorizing sight words and using picture cues in order to to help them read, but decoding tricky words, breaking words apart and spelling are areas in which their skills are not as strong.
This Phonics unit will allow me to add to my toolbox of strategies for helping readers boost their reading skills.
It is a unit with five different areas to focus on when teaching the beginning phonics skills that will help build a foundation for our students' learning. Your generous donation will directly impact my students.
