Mrs. Kilgo from Rome GA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students 16 new Floor Puzzles to help build their critical thinking skills.
Special education students in my class range in grade level from kindergarten to sixth grade. These students are such an exciting group of learners with mixed interests, abilities, and goals. Some of my students are learning to read, write, and count, while others are learning addition and subtraction, asking and answering questions and writing complete sentences.
My students are eager to learn in various ways; they are inquisitive, determined and creative.
The lessons I teach in my classroom are designed to encourage the use of critical thinking, and critical thinking happens every day in all we do.
Have you ever felt the triumph of completing a puzzle? My students love working puzzles! They show excitement as they work through it and feel accomplished to set the final piece. We have such a need for new puzzles. Currently, our students are working with puzzles that are far past gently used; they have both torn edges and missing pieces. We want brand new, large puzzles so our students can easily see the shapes, pictures, and themes. By working such puzzles, our students will learn to work cooperatively, think critically, and problem solve strategically. Our room has a large carpet area perfect for building the new puzzles and a small shelving unit perfect for housing the new puzzles; we are only missing the puzzles.
Puzzles are an important educational tool for young children as they help to build and develop many skills - physical skills, cognitive skills, and social skills.
The various benefits of building puzzles are multiple. Your donations to this project will help improve my students' problem solving, fine motor development, hand and eye coordination, and self esteem. My students and I look forward to using these new puzzles in our classroom.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
