Mrs. Owen from Colorado Springs CO is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creative Minds will Flourish

Help me give my students items that will allow them to be creative with open ended play. The dollhouse, furniture, and play families will provide students the chance to create stories and adventures for the families.

My Students

It is my pleasure every day to teach twenty-two five and six year old students. They are all full of energy and joy. Over 50% of my students come from military families. As a result, there is a lot of mobility within the classroom.

All of my students have unique abilities and personalities.

They love exploring, creating, and building in the classroom. There is constant chatter in the classroom as every student has much to say about their lives! My students love each other and sharing "good things" that are happening in their lives!

My Project

The items requested today will be used during our free choice time in the classroom. During free choice the students are able to create and play freely around the classroom. The foam blocks will be used for building homes, castles, and other building the students think of making. Other items included will be added to our art area to allow student to create works of art that they will be proud to take home and share with parents.

Students need the opportunity for creative, open ended play.

All items requested today will allow the students in my kindergarten classroom to use their minds without being stifled. This open ended play allows the students opportunities to also work on social skills as they work together to create and build. The classroom is full of energy and joy during free choice time, and all items requested will add to the positive environment.
