My Students

My class of students are eager to learn to read! They love books and are curious about the knowledge they can find in them! It is exciting to see my students reading and sharing books with their classmates.

“The whole world opened up when I learned to read.”- Mary McCleod Bethune

That is exactly what I have been charged to do for my 25 little students! Open their eyes, brain and imagination to the whole world! Our literature rich classroom is filled with hundreds of books for students to read. My job is to teach them to read these books!

My Project

As part of a Balanced Literacy classroom my students learn phonics. Phonics help my students to not only learn to read, but how to write words with confidence.

I believe children learn while playing.

Playing is fun and learning should be fun, too! So why not teach children to learn using games? Children can learn phonics by touching and manipulating objects. What fun my students will have using the Phonics Activity Station!

All of these phonics and word building activities will be used during our daily 30 minutes of designated phonics time. Students will work in small groups with other students who have the same needs.
