Working on Words

My students need hands-on tools, such as Alphabriks, letter beads, stamps and more, to allow them to build words and sharpen their phonics skills.

My Students

Each student has a unique life, background, and they bring to school with them many different experiences. Our school is in a small town community with kids that help with farm chores, others help with baby siblings, and much more.

They're all different, but one thing is the same for all of my students...they want to learn.

My job is to give them the opportunity to grow. For my students, they will always take the challenge. Especially when it is given to them in an engaging way.

My Project

Students are always craving for more hands-on activities and it always instantly sparks engagement. I would like to focus more on building words using letter sounds. Alphabriks, letter beads, stamps and more will let students manipulate sounds to form words. Allowing the students choices of stations lets them take charge of their learning. With these centers building words will be instant fun. It's pretty neat when learning feels like play!

"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I will learn.", said Benjamin Franklin.

These materials allow students to have their hands on letters building words using their brain and their bodies. The more students are involved in their learning, the more they will grow!
