I teach 16 children that are from very low-income families. At school, they receive breakfast, lunch, and a snack. They are with me five days a week from 8-2. During this time I like to provide an environment which is rich in learning and discovering. My children are very enthusiastic about learning and get very excited to participate in all activities. The children are very hands-on and thrive in a learning environment that has lots of different activities to do completely.
If funded, these dramatic play items will allow my students to have different opportunities to play. They will be able to use their imaginations and broaden their experiences in the classroom by using the items that go in a kitchen or by playing with one of the career items. There will be opportunities to learn vocabulary that they probably do not already know. Through play the children will learn how to share and work together to come up with ways to use the materials that are provided. They will be able to use items that they may not have a chance to use other than at school. It will also allow children who may not have very good speech to be able to express themselves.
