Ms. Thaler from Sunrise FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a hands on, self-correcting way to practice reading skills WITHOUT a screen.
I work with a class of twenty-three fifth graders who are eager to learn. My classroom is not just a place to learn, but a place where my students learn they are able to change the world through the choices and decisions they make in their lives.
The majority of students at my school receive free or reduced-price lunch, meaning they qualify for at least some, if not all, of their meals paid for by the district due to a low parent income at home.
Since many of my students come from low-income homes, it can negatively affect their ability to learn successfully. My students come to school wanting to learn and with a positive attitude to do so, no matter what is going on at home. They are hard-workers who want to do good things with their lives, and they know it starts here in the classroom.
My students are fairly fluent at reading on the computer, but reading on paper seems to be more difficult. Unfortunately, we don't have a lot of paper based resources.
With VersaTiles, students can get the paper based learning they need in a fun, self-checking game.
In addition to VersaTiles being fun, they meet a number of standards. The reading set I am requesting includes foundational skills like phonics as well as comprehension skills for both literature and informational texts. I intend to use the program in both small groups at my reading table as well as for center usage. Since the kit comes with 8 sets of tiles and 4 books per title, students will be able to pair up in order to complete their puzzles.
