Mrs. Brooks from Big Lake AK is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the ability to independently practice previously taught literacy skills, while I work with other students in small reading groups with a set of VersaTiles.
Our students come from a low socio-economic area. They are students with learning disabilities, emotional trauma and medical needs. They are fun loving, talented, and driven young people who strive to do their best everyday. They always come to school with smiles and they love to be with their teachers learning in any way they can. I love that they love to be at school learning everyday despite coming from disadvantaged backgrounds.
They do not get to experience much of the world in which they live, other than home and school.
These VersaTiles are perfect to be used for independent work stations while I am teaching other students in a small group in the classroom. I find that students in my class are at such varying reading abilities, that it is hard to differentiate their learning and find things they can work on productively, independently. I love versatiles for many reasons.
Not only do they help the child learn to work independently, but they encourage problem solving.
When the child has completed their page, they have to turn the VersaTiles over to check they pattern on the back to see if they have answered everything correctly. By using visual discrimination skills, they can determine whether or not they have the correct answers.
