Ms. Clark from New York NY is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books and Games Help Us Learn!

My students need games and comfortable seating to help them grow and learn, as well as to assist with their fine and gross motor development. I'd also like to add more read-aloud books to our collection.

My Students

My class is comprised of 22 curious, smart, thoughtful, funny kindergarteners. They come from all over the globe, speak many languages, and have different life experiences. Imagination brings them together.

Some days they are explorers, traveling to far off lands, other days they are dinosaurs, stomping through the wilderness, still other days they are construction workers, nurses, and athletes.

Every day, my wonderful students let their imaginations run wild. They are creators of their own worlds, and my greatest hope is to provide them with the tools to be caring citizens of this one.

My Project

As my students have grown, so have their interests and varying abilities.

I have noticed the kinds of activities that my students gravitate towards: inclusive, multi-player games, which is why I'd like to introduce them to classics such as Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders, as well as building and engineering materials such as Magna Tiles, the Interlocking Disc Piece Set, and and Magnetic Building Blocks.

The Earth Matching game will be a fun way to sharpen short-term memory skills.

I would also like for my kids to continue developing their fine motor skills, which can be done through handling small pieces in the game Operation, as well as manipulating textured materials, such as slime. In addition to the slime, the kaleidoscope would make a great addition to our discovery center, as many of my students have never seen one.

Finally, I am always looking to add to our classroom library: We're All Wonders, is a beautiful book about accepting each other's differences, while the Ramona collection is a classic children's set that I'd like to read aloud to the class. The Early Story Starter Jar will provide students with ideas for what to write about when they are absolutely stuck.
