The Places Reading Can Take Us!

My students need some additional practice with phonics and reading to help them in becoming competitive citizens in the Silicon Valley!

My Students

My students are fantastic, caring social beings learning how to operate in the 21st century! They enjoy reading and expressing their thoughts through writing. They use every learning opportunity availability to them to grow their brains! These little “turkeys” have Asked their families to donate supplies but don’t they don’t always have access to supplying donations. I would love to be able to provide them with more opportunities to help them enjoy learning at school while using multiple learning tools!

My Project

These materials will help in assisting our students to become future competitors in the Silicon Valley! They need multiple interactions with letter sounds to sound out words, and identifying spelling patterns to make their reading dreams into a reality! Our supplies assist us in learning how to write and stengthening our hand muscles so we can write legibly! We currently have access to a few supplies and materials in our classroom but I would love to broaden these students vocabulary and daily experiences by offering them more encounters with different classroom materials. Together we can help all students love reading and writing :)
