Ms. Bassett from Pittsburgh PA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need new dramtic play items to replace the broken ones.
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, 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. My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.
They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention.
Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the 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.
Students will use the costume kit to fully immerse themselves in taking on the roles of various community members. Being able to dress up allows the children to take the pretend play to another level and enjoy it even more.
When you include academic content in the dramatic play center, the students can extend their learning in a fun and meaningful way.
The costumes and props that this will fund can help my students have a more authentic experience. The dramatic play items I'm requesting will not only help my students develop language skills as they integrate vocabulary into play, but will support their social development as they learn to take turns and practice manners and eye contact.
Providing a great dramatic play area in my classroom will allow me to integrate meaningful interactions among students by adding props to build on children's knowledge, encourage social interactions, and hold their interest.
