We collaborate with kindergarten and first-grade teachers to create kid-sized materials that align directly with their classroom curriculums. The teachers use these materials in the classroom and allow the children to take them home. Kids love owning their own learning materials.
We thank our paper sponsor, Walmart River City Marketplace, and our cadre of volunteers who cut and assemble the materials. They make this all possible!
Sight Word Pads
Reinvented for the 2023-24 school year! Every kindergartener receives 30 sight word pads during the school year. Each pad contains the newest sight words the children are introduced to that week. A few sentences show how the words are used. Manuscript lines help students practice their handwriting while reinforcing these words. At the back of each pad is an alphabetical grouping of sight words to date.
In total, 3,300 pads are assembled each school year using 27,335 sheets of paper.
Count to 100
Many kindergarteners intuitively see the number structure behind counting to 100. Others need help seeing the logic.
This colorful math and handwriting activity is both laminated for classroom use and printed for the kids to take home.
My Blue Book
To date, 13 dot-to-dot pads are in production. In the past, teachers have been purchasing dot-to-dots with their own money and said they never had enough. We created our own quality (even if we do say so ourselves) dot-to-dots and bind them according to the level of difficulty. That way, teachers can select just the right skill level for each child. While the kids think the puzzles are only for fun, they are improving fine motor skills needed for writing and learning number order (or mastering the alphabet).
