Ms. Trozzo from Pittsburgh PA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need new block area toys to continue their learning with a different variety of new things
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
Many of my students are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status.
These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
We are expanding our block area to new and exciting things. My students will get to experience nature by adding blocks into the area that they might not get to see everyday. The other nature blocks will be used to build different things. It will also work on their fine motor skills by putting them together. They will get to learn how different simple machines work by using the different machines and talk about how they work. They will get to use the hammers to experience different kinds of work. The extra pieces are for them to work together to use them. We will talk about what types of people use these tools in their every day life. They don’t always get to experience new things, so I like to give them the opportunity in my classroom.
