My Students

I teach twenty two energetic, sweet, and inquisitive Kindergarten students in a rural North Carolina School. My students come from various types of backgrounds. Some of my students come from military families where their mom or dad may be deployed. We have a lot of English Language Learning students who are learning English as their second language. We also have students who are homeless. Every student at my school receives free breakfast and lunch. My students come to school every day craving attention and eager to learn.

“If we want our children to move mountains, we first have to let them get out of their chairs.” ~ Nicolette Sowder

Many of my students enter Kindergarten straight from home with no preschool or daycare experience. We teach the students how to get along with others and share, coping skills, and self-help skills like zipping their jackets and tying their shoelaces. The demands for Kindergarten are rigorous for students with no prior knowledge of letters or sounds, how to hold a pencil, or how to use scissors. A Kindergarten student is expected to be reading by the end of the school year. We love play based learning in my room.

My Project

My students need alphabet locks, magnadoodles, alphabet letter tiles, snap together letter blocks, alphabet dough stampers, as well as a cvc word work center to make our working on words station come to life! By having a variety of materials available the students will not get bored practicing their letters and sounds or making words.

Research states that letter manipulatives give children a way to interact with the alphabet through hands on play.

Children are able to feel the shape of the letter and arrange multiple letters to form words. Children can see the lines and the curves that come together to form each letter.

My students will be able to utilize the word work materials during our 90 minute literacy block each day. The students I serve are majority poverty level. They come into Kindergarten with little to no exposure to letters of the alphabet. The students will be able to use the alphabet blocks at the beginning of the year. They will use the key to unlock the matching letter lock. Students will be learning through PLAY!! The students will also be able to use the writing practice magic boards at the beginning of the year to practice writing the letters in their name as well as the alphabet. By the end of October, most of the students will be able to move onto making simple cvc words. They will be able to utilize the alphabet letter tiles and snap together blocks to put these words together and read the words with a friend. Students will also enjoy using the lowercase alphabet dough stampers to make words while working with play-doh. The above tools will help my students through kinesthetic, tactile, and visual learning!
