My Students

My students are just awesome! It is as simple as that - just awesome! They are the most curious and inquisitive group of children you would ever meet. They may be young but don't let their age fool you into thinking they're not ready to use the tools they have and apply the new ones as soon as they learn them!

Despite the hardships many have already experienced, these little wonders are ready to learn and most importantly - to take care of each other!

They put a smile on your face and a spring in your step each and every day. Please, help them develop the skills necessary for their success, for their future.

My Project

My young students will greatly benefit from these awesome manipulative and books.

The manipulative such as Alphabet Soup Sort will help my little beginner readers learn the beginning sounds of words as well as as the letter sounds.

Little Leveled Readers will allow my young students to learn and practice reading their first words, sentences, and books (!) independently.

The CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) Word Building Cards and CVC Unifix Cubes will help my young students learning to write their words independently and read them too. The alphabet matching games will allow my students to learn the Upper and lower case letter pairs.
