Wondrous Writing Tools

Help me give my students a tool that will excite them when it's time to practice writing: letter formation, number formation, sight words, sentences, addition and subtraction problems, etc.

My Students

My students are a diverse, multicultural group of learners in an inclusive classroom. For some, it is their first real-school experience. Kindergarten is such a special year because students come in eager to learn and make tremendous gains in their social-emotional, fine/gross motor, and academic skills. These skills will prepare them for successful primary years in school to follow. They are kind, caring, fun-loving, hard-working children who deserve nothing but the best so they can become their best independent selves!

My Project

Students in Kindergarten are learning how to form letters and numbers (top to bottom, left to right) and as you know, practice makes BETTER (not perfect...they love using that phrase!) While we use a variety of objects to practice (paper/pencil, white boards, crayons, playdough) there are several students who would benefit from using a different, more exciting tool: the writing tablets. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a child excited to work on a concept/skill that is challenging for them. These tablets provide one more way for students to practice skills that are reinforced every single day in our classroom. All students will benefit from this tool and is will be a wonderful addition to literacy and math centers and provides differentiation needed at this time. Some students will be working on letter formation while others are working on individual sight words rings. Some students will be working on writing sentences. In math, students can practice number formation and order, addition/subtraction, word problems, etc. It is also a nice tool to use during our OT RTI for students who need extra help with fine motor skills. These writing tablets can be used in all parts of the curriculum throughout our day and I know our students would love to have them in our classroom.
