My Students

The students in my class are excited and eager to learn. My students are joyful, energetic, creative and always so much fun to be around! They come from a variety of backgrounds and have a wide range of educational experiences. Most of my students come from low-income homes where they have had limited exposure to reading. Some students have experienced some form of previous education while others do not know how to hold a book. All of my students are capable of growing and learning inside the classroom.

My students have so much to learn whether they need to learn how to tie their shoes, letter sounds, adding or writing.

My students have the potential to do amazing things and I loving being able to help them grow.

My Project

These materials will make an impact in my student's learning because they are hands-on, engaging activities that will help them learn how to build, spell and read words! I would use the 3-letter word building puzzles and simple words learning locks to help my students with extra practice while we are learning about word families. My students will be so engaged to sound out their CVC words to build the puzzle or unlock the lock. The rhyming sounds phonics train and rhyming match-ups will be perfect for my students to practice rhyming words. There are a wide variety of words for my students to have lots of exposure to rhyming words.

My students will love the hands-on ways they will be learning how to build words and recognize rhyme, they are never going to want to stop!

My students need fun interactive ways to practice their reading skills and I think these materials would do just that. My students would love to have new games to practice reading and they would be so excited to use these materials in our classroom.
