About

Here are some of the things you can do to help these young students start their education in a successful manner-

2 nd Grade

Volunteer will work one on one with a student to help with early math skills and number writing.

Kindergarten

Volunteers:

He/she will be working with students in small pull out groups with writing their name, and writing letters and numbers. They will help students that need additional support in understanding the directions and completing task.

They may also help students individually as needed or help with letter recognition and sounds.

Kindergarten-

  1. Pencil grips
  2. Scissor grips
  3. Small groups of students with hand strengthening activities (play-doh, etc.)
  4. Counting with students who still can't count to 20
  5. Practicing number recognition 1-20
  6. Games that include counting (Candy Land, Sorry)
  7. Tying shoes
  8. ABC/123 Hop-scotch
  9. Energy Breaks (exercises in the hallway for students that are struggling to focus)
  10. Drawing/Coloring lessons ... so when we do art projects, they have already started the activity in a small group setting, allow them to build on prior success.
