My students need a comfy chair, grocery store, grocery items and storage bins for our dramatic play center

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are part of a Dual Language program. Our classroom is their first introduction to learning a second language and the children are eager to learn through a variety of methods. Exposing children to a second language early on serves to enhance their learning experience.

In our multicultural, low-income community, students arrive with a smile.

They look forward to trying new things and using materials that they have never used before. Our unique program allows them to learn all subjects in English and Spanish on a daily basis.

My Project

Young children like to pretend that they are grown-ups, shopping, cooking and relaxing with a good book. Children love to pretend that they are working in a grocery store and adding a food store unit gives them the perfect opportunity to do so. The comfy red chair will let children sit back and relax, just like they do in their own living room at home. Some grocery items like a carton of eggs that resemble real items will help students play in a more realistic environment. Adding some small storage bins for items will also help sort and organize some of the smaller dramatic play items as well.
