My students need dramatic play that will reinforce their learning and support their social skills.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My school has an unique population of students. My students come from traditional and non-traditional home settings in a town that is suffering from a loss of our working mill. We have closed a school and merged into one building. These kids are mostly from farms, multi-family homes, and rural settings.
My school is full of little Mainers with big dreams and it's my job to get them started on the right path!
My school is a professional community of life-long learners with a common goal: Teach every child.
Years ago, primary school was filled with play-based learning. Then the nation decided we needed to be purely academic. This gave us the Common Core State Standards.
Now, we are realizing that primary schools need to have a balanced learning environment that supports rigorous academics and play.
I envision the puppet theater and puppets to be part of our classroom library, a place where the students can use their oral story-telling to be creative or to retell classics that they love.
The kitchen set will be used in our math workshop and it will provide a place for imagination, counting, money play, sequencing, wants and needs, and role playing. Thank you for considering this project for your donation!
