My students attend a Title I school in the suburbs of Detroit. Our Transitional Kindergarten program gives children from all cultures and various incomes an opportunity to learn and thrive within the district before going to kindergarten. My energetic TK students enter the classroom ready to learn, discover, and explore.
They love to read books, draw pictures, use tablets, build structures, and compare, sort, and pretend play throughout the day.
They light up as they proudly identify letters and discover sounds. They love to learn and use their imaginations.
We are requesting a Stand-Up Magnetic Write & Wipe Center and an Engineer-A-Coaster Activity Kit that will have them using their problem solving skills. My students love to build and create! During our stations and recess, my students gravitate toward the toys and manipulatives that they can build structures and designs with. They are using their imaginations as well as their STEM skills and critical thinking skills.
The Engineer-A-Coaster Activity Kit will allow my students to continue to use their imaginations and problem solving skills to create different tracks for the disks to follow.
It also Allows them to practice their fine motor skills to align the tracks to allow the disks to flow down.
The Stand-Up Write and Wipe center will make the perfect station for the Engineer-A-Coaster Activity Kit. The students will be able to work together in small groups to develop different coaster tracks. This center could also used throughout the day for literacy and math activities since it is double sided.
