Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 16

The students benefitted from the grant because they have improved their phonics knowledge and spelling skills too.  They have used the letters, kits and whiteboards in small groups to increase their sight word knowledge and phonics pattern knowledge.  The use of the manipulatives allows children to learn in a more hands-on, tactile way which supports learning through various modes (i.e auditory, visual and tactile).  The whiteboards and magnetic letters are very sturdy and will continue to support student learning for many years to come.  These educational tools are awesome! 

 

Original Grant Overview

Goal

I would love to purchase a classroom magnetic letter set and 6 magnetic white boards to use with Jan Richardson guided reading groups. The letter set will increase students' phonic skills therefore improving their overall reading comprehension.  

 

What will be done with my students

I plan to use the magnetic letters and boards during small group reading centers. The reading group instruction typically begins with a phonics lesson and the letters would greatly assist students with this work. The tactile letters allow students to learn in a more hands on way rather than traditional paper and pencil. The letters will be used all throughout the year during our reading portion of the learning day.  

 

Benefits to my students

As a result of the phonics and word work instruction students will show improvement in their reading abilities and their overall reading comprehension. Being a proficient reader is an essential skill in today's classroom and impacts all other academic areas (i.e. writing, math, science and social studies).  

 

Describe the Students

My school is a Title 1 elementary school and also an L300 school. The students come from a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses. Some students in my classroom receive speech and language therapy too. I have a wide range of academic abilities in my classroom such as students working below grade level, some working on grade level and some working above grade level.
