I am the proud teacher of bright and energetic kindergarten children. These children all come from low income families and a strict school budget. We are provided with basic school supplies but I am on my own for any additional materials. I would like to open up a Clay & Dough center in my classroom where my students will be free to create. Young children need opportunities to use their imagination and be creative. I am hoping this center will do just that. The materials I am requesting include clay and a clay & dough designer kit which includes a 40 piece set. I am also requesting upper & lowercase alphabet stamps so the children can use this as a literacy center as well. They will be able to stamp out words, names, and just about anything they wish. The tools included in this kit will allow them to use their fine motor skills to design, roll, cut, stamp, slice, and so much more. I know the children will truly enjoy this center. Please help me make this creative center possible for these children. We appreciate any help you are able to provide. I sincerely thank you for your time and consideration.
