Mrs. Blatt from Peninsula OH is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a wooden train set, magnetic cars and trucks, and building blocks.
My classroom is a positive learning environment where 21 students grow and learn both academically and socially. The students in my classroom come from a variety of backgrounds and households, however this does not stop them from learning and growing. My goal is to provide my students with learning opportunities that will address not only their academic needs, but their social and emotional needs as well. Our school puts a major emphasis on learning through play and it is an important part of our daily schedule.
Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning.
Through play, children develop important academic skills, social skills, problem solving skills, and communication skills. Play allows students to build relationships with their peers. Play is fun but more importantly, play provides students with opportunities to develop a deeper understanding of the world around them.
Play is important in student learning since it encourages role playing, language development and problem solving. Imaginative play in kindergarten enables students to engage with their peers, develop empathy, and creativity. Children learn best through play because it allows them to ask questions and discover new things.
Play is our brain's favorite way of learning.
Items received from the All Aboard for Play will be used during centers and free choice time. Students will use their imagination and work together to build with train tracks, create a variety of magnetic cars and trucks to incorporate into their train station. The additional blocks will be used during our science exploration. Students will create 3D buildings on their own or follow a building pattern. This will allow students to use problem solving skills and work together as a team to create structures.
