I am a first grade teacher at P.S. 33 in the Chelsea section of Manhattan. P.S. 33 serves a diverse group of intelligent and eager children. Ninety percent of students receive free lunch. I believe that as a first grade teacher I need to acclimate my students to being in school, as well as teach them how to treat others with respect and kindness. (Many of my students did not attend kindergarten.) The most effective way to do this is through play. I would like to have a set of wooden blocks for my students. Blocks can be used in many ways in the classroom. In addition to giving my students an opportunity to play together and learn social skills, block building can be made into a literacy activity. I have seen children build restaurants with blocks, and from that write menus, take orders, and make signs for the restaurant. Through this authentic literacy activity, the students are learning the importance of reading and writing. It would be much appreciated if you would fulfill this proposal as the wooden blocks would be a fun and important addition to my classroom.
