Change the World with Creativity in Kindergarten

My students need a brick building activity table with building bricks for our dramatic play center.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

This project will allow my students the ability to work in centers independently. It will also make learning fun. My classroom will be buzzing with happy boys and girls eager to learn with all the new resources.

I have 16 wonderful kindergarten students.

They work hard every day to learn all the necessary academic skills. A brick building table and accessories will give them a chance to experience creative play in our creative play center. Their ability levels range from those who need lots of one-on-one attention to those who are very independent learners. But all of my students enjoy learning about themselves and the world they live in. My students spend most of the day learning through books and centers. I would like to give them a chance to be creative through hands-on materials. With the Lego table and Lego blocks, my students will be able to use their creativity to learn while at the same time having fun.

My Project

With the brick building table, brick building blocks, and brick building people my little ones will be able to use their creativity in a fun center while at the same time learning kindergarten skills. This project will also allow my boys and girls to make words during reading and create number lines during math using the letter and number bricks we already have. It will also make learning fun. My classroom will be buzzing with happy boys and girls eager to learn with all the new resources.

With your caring donation, my little Kindergarten students will all benefit from this brick building table and brick building blocks that will provide each boy and girl the opportunity to explore their creativity as he/she works in centers independently.
