Ms. Sydney from New York NY is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a well-stocked block area so that they can design and build structures.
My students are a spirited, creative, curious bunch of first graders who are passionate readers, writers, mathematicians, athletes, artists, performers, builders, storytellers, activists, and friends. We spend our days reading, singing, playing math games, exploring science and social studies topics, and studying art.
Our amazing school serves students from pre-kindergarten to 8th grade with a student-centered, culturally-sustaining, social justice-minded philosophy.
In addition to language arts, math, science, and social studies, our school prioritizes visual and performing arts, the Maker Movement, and community activism.
If this project is fully funded, my classroom will receive a sturdy Childcraft compartment shelf and a set of 200 wooden unit blocks. At our school, only pre-K classes have block areas, though there are tremendous benefits of block building throughout early childhood years.
Building with blocks helps children develop hand-eye coordination and spatial awareness, teaches early math and engineering skills, improves fine motor skills, enhances logical thinking capabilities, and fosters collaboration among peers.
First graders are often expected to spend their school days sitting and doing written academic work, when really they need ample time to play, experiment, move, build, and imagine! Our new block area will be another essential space for play-based learning.
