I teach language arts to 63 second-grade students from diverse backgrounds. All of the students at my school receive a free breakfast and lunch daily. Some of the students also receive food backpacks for the weekends. Many of my students are learning to speak English as their second language.
My students come to school eager to learn every day.
They are very appreciative of kind gestures and support. Sadly, students attending high-poverty schools are often not privy to the support and generosity that their counterparts in wealthier schools receive.
I'm requesting these super engaging activities to help my students develop the foundational skills they are lacking to become fluent readers!
The word family books will help students practice spelling patterns while developing sight word fluency.
The rhyming mats will also teach spelling patterns while students successfully sort words into the correct word family. Finally, the writing mats will encourage students to use their letter-sound correspondence knowledge to create new words with similar spelling patterns.
All of these activities I'm requesting will keep students engaged in the learning process while giving them the skills to become successful readers!
Thank you so much for caring about my students and their academic needs.
