At Level Green Elementary School, Mrs. Shogan’s first-grade students are enjoying new hands-on phonics resources thanks to DonorsChoose, a crowdfunding platform for teachers.
The new materials include games and manipulatives that encourage students to sound out and spell words in fun and engaging ways. “We have already started using these new learning centers and my first graders are having fun while mastering their decoding skills,” commented Shogan.
Adrian Zdrale, Wyatt Johnston and Ryann Dulemba work together using sound spelling cards
Olivia Weisend, Paisley Hitchen and Ezra Bell play a high frequency memory word game
Tyler Martz and Martino DeSantis decode words using a new snap and build phonics game
Chloe Zeminski, Gemma Armbrust and Clara Briscoe work together on their phonics skills to build new words with an interactive snap and build center
