Phoneme Track, $69.95, 0.00% raised
Phoneme Track Rank:
Single Unit Why I need this:
A huge focus in our first grade class is phonics. My students struggle to read simple words and sound them out (many are reading at or below a kindergarten level). This program will help my students to practice phoneme segmentation (one of the skills tested monthly throughout our school district via DIBELS).
Quantity: 1 Price: $69.95

Norwood Elementary School
Hometown:
Baltimore, MD
Class Information:
Room Number: 6
Students per Class: 26
Class Description:
My first grade class is full of excitement and students. With 26 students I am constantly splitting into groups and differentiating. Also, many of the students in my class have learning disabilities. Using technology has helped my students to better express themselves. Many times they are frustrated and unmotivated to write their ideas so different technologies help them to feel confident and motivated. We are a diverse group of learners that focus on reading, phonics, and math each and every day to help us prepare for the future.
Position:
Elementary Teacher
My Philosophy:
Every child CAN learn! We all come from different backgrounds and may have difficult home lives but in my room we are a family. We care about each other and help each other when ever possible. Not only are we responsible for ourselves and our behavior but also to set a good example for others in the school and community!
