I work with a group of twenty fantastic four and five-year-old Head Start children who learn best through play. The majority of our day is spent learning while playing and working with hands-on activities that are planned with the children’s interests in mind.
I have a very creative group of children with immense imaginations.
Although my students enjoy all of the centers in the classroom they especially enjoy using their imagination in the block area. This center is the largest area in the classroom and the most used area. I would like to cover all of the children’s interests with a variety of blocks and props to encourage learning in all developmental domains. Most importantly to increase their self-esteem and social and emotional skills.
I love seeing the enthusiasm and excitement they display while learning in the block area.
Block play is an important part of our classroom. Block play encourages working together, sharing and communicating with others. Block play will also assist in developing language skills, math skills, hand-eye coordination and special reasoning.
Most importantly it will give the students hours of enjoyment while learning.
I would like to cover all of the children’s interests with plenty of opportunities to explore balance, cause and effect and experiment with weights and size relationships.
The children enjoy building with a variety of structures.
The materials that I am requesting would give the students the opportunity to build elaborate jumbo structures and also role play while interacting with a giant tree house complete with furniture and families.
