My Students

My students are bright and excited about learning. They are hard-working and have wonderfully supportive families. Many of my students come from homes where English is their second language. I want to bring new materials that will encourage them in school success. They want to be good readers and mathematicians, but they need some support with new hands-on materials.

My students are beginning transitional kindergarten and are very excited to have the many new experiences that starting school brings to them.

I also want to help them learn to be successful in school and in their future. Please help me help my students have the tools they need to explore these important early literacy and beginning reading skills.

My Project

The alphabet sounds tubs and storage rack set that I am requesting for my class is a hands-on activity set that we will use in class all year long and for many years to come as well.

Young children learn best with real items that they can hold and manipulate to help their understanding of the alphabet and sounds the letters make.

We would use the materials In a variety of ways. One way is to introduce the letter and the sound, another would be to use several tubs and sort the items by sound in the correct tub, also we could use the items to identify the syllables in the item, all which are Kindergarten Common Core Standards. I hope you will consider helping my students to learn the alphabet with these learning tubs.
