Mrs. Mayfield from O Fallon IL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Building Social Emotional Skills Through Pretend Play

My students need pretend play things to spark imagination and help them build appropriate social emotional skills. The tree house, accessories, and animal critters will be an extension of the basic dollhouse for girls and boys.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classroom consists of 4 and 5 year old children in Southern Illinois preparing for Kindergarten. We are housed in an elementary building with preschool through 5th grade.

My students are eager to learn new and exciting things every day!

The goal in my classroom is to send children to Kindergarten who are confident in themselves and explore the world around them with enthusiasm. Students who are given a strong foundation and have a love for school will be successful.

My Project

Besides the tree house and critters, my students will continue to use their imagination while playing with the dinosaur, shark, turtle, and cat puppets. They can pretend to be one of our class pet turtles, Frankie or Tuck, while playing with the turtle puppet. They will work on their basic skills and sorting knowledge, as well as fine motor skills, with magnetic wand puzzles for numbers, shapes, and colors.

I would like my students to have access to the tree house during all of our free play time, so I have added a child size table to have it sitting on during these times.

Finally, the addition of 4 Flex-Space seats will give students a comfortable place to sit when looking at a book or working on a magnetic wand puzzle. The could also be used for students who are having difficulty sitting during whole group times.
