Mrs. Nelson from Box Elder SD is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Can Be Super Readers!

My students need practice with letters, sounds, sight words, CVC words, blends and digraphs. These materials will allow them to practice their skills in these areas independently while I am reading with other children.

My Students

My students come from a variety of backgrounds. I have many that come from a low income environment and don't have any previous school experience, and some that come from a military situation that are from an Air Force Base, that we serve next to us.

Many of the low income students don't have very good home situations and don't get read to, or don't go to preschool environments before they come to me in kindergarten.

I have two full-time special education students that come with an aide to my room for reading and word study that would benefit from these materials also.

The aide and myself will be introducing these activities in small groups to allow my students to learn how to use them and then use them independently.

My Project

The materials in this project will help my students to practice their reading skills independently. All of the activities in these materials will focus on phonics skills to build the foundation of letters, sounds, and words for my beginning readers!

Many of my students come from homes that don't provide lap time reading or language skills necessary to be ready to learn to read when they come to me.

They need extra support in phonics, sight words and vocabulary since they don't receive this at home before they come to me.

I need for my students to be able to practice these skills independently while I am reading with other students and these activities will provide that extra support they need!
