My Students

Remember those days when all you had to do was play and the hours passed by quickly? All to often now young kids are to busy to play and I do not want that to be the case in my classroom.

My Kindergarten classroom is full with 20 highly active students ready to learn and playtime is an integral role in a child development and learning.

Dramatic play, fine motor development, gross motor development helps a student be a better learner and teaches them how to act in social situations.

My Project

By having these developmental toys as a resource in our room, my students will be able to learn while they play. These students are only 5 and 6 and need to be able to step back from the academics and learn in an active and playful situation not only to foster developmental skills but social skills as well.

By donating to this project you will be helping Kindergarten students grow, develop, and interact in a fun and educational environment.

“When kids play, they remember. They may not be aware they are learning, but they sure are aware they are having fun, and the great thing is that is comes so naturally… if we only let it.”
