Ms. Satzman from Brooklyn NY is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

And The Oscar Goes To...

My students need a costume set and Grandma/Grandpa dress up sets to enhance the dramatic play area of our Pre-K classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Pre-Kindergarten class is made up of children from a high-need community in New York. The large majority of my students have not had the opportunity to develop enriched language skills. All of the students in the school receive free school lunch.

Children who are read to and have had many different types of life experiences develop a rich language base and a wealth of prior knowledge. These foundations are beneficial to their success in reading, writing, and verbal communication. The children in my school have unfortunately not been exposed to this type of early learning, leaving them with underdeveloped language skills, and a severely limited knowledge base from which they can draw upon.

By creating a dynamic dramatic play center in my classroom, all of my students will have opportunities to use and develop verbal language skills in a natural and inclusive setting. Students will have the opportunity to dress up as various members of their community and use appropriate dialog to communicate their ideas.

Your generous donation will allow my students to experience dramatic play at its best. Who knows, I may have a future Academy Awards winner in my class, and you will have helped put them there!
