Ms. Mitchell from Lexington KY is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need a soft and safe balance beam to work on their gross motor skills in the classroom. We also need dress up clothes for the children to use in dramatic play to encourage creativity.
As a teacher of students in low income/single-parent family homes, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
The students in my room like to move; they love to read and love lots of positive attention.
Many are students with a range of disabilities, emotional disturbance, and specific learning disability. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may deprive them of life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
The Dramatic Play materials will help my students learn about things about different families and cultures. Playing with babies will help them learn how to be good parents. Dramatic Play clothing will teach them more about diversity and community helpers. It will also help the children in my classroom with developmental abilities using their imaginations.
The Dramatic Play materials will help our children learn more about culture diversity and community helpers in our community.
The barn will also assist the children in using their imaginations and retelling stories while playing in small groups or individually. The balance beam will allow them to move around the classroom in different ways and practice gross motor skills like balancing, jumping, etc.
