I teach 4th grade in Madison County, North Carolina. We are a very rural western mountain district. Many of my students receive free or reduced lunch.
I teach vocabulary strategies with our reading stories. We manipulate words, break them into syllables, discuss prefixes, suffixes, and also the meaning. In order for all of my students to be successful, I need additional wall space to display word wall words and vocabulary. The students are also required to break up into groups and complete activities using sentence strips and vocabulary. I am requesting pocket charts, a stand, and sentence strips. These pocket charts come in very handy during the day. At times we create words from prefixes, root words, or suffixes. Many days we display and disect phrases, sentences, song lyrics, and poems, but most importantly they need to be displayed visually and left up to be referenced and manipulated. Some of the activities we play include alphabetical order, sorting, sequencing, poems, vocabulary hangman, and vocabulary charades.
Having pocket charts on stands would allow them to remain on display, be readily available for games and activities, and serve as screens for students who need privacy. Furthermore, the stands place the top pockets within easy reach for my students.
Thank you for funding my proposal. My students will be delighted.
