Mrs. Naylor from Moses Lake WA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Dramatic Play-Making A Real-Life Connection

My students need materials to use with the light table. Our district recently purchased kitchens for all classrooms-yay! However we need items to play within the home area.

My Students

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 them actively engaged in creating meaningful environments where all students can come together and explore through play to learn.

Many of my students 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 see them as the future leaders they will become. While I may not be able to control their home lives, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. I am working to inspire our earliest learners to continue on their path toward academic excellence.

My Project

These materials will be used to enhance our dramatic play center as well as our light table. Our district purchased kitchen sets for all kindergarten rooms however; we need some tools to create real-world connections. Not only are you helping create an engaging environment for play, you are setting up a social-emotional environment where the teacher can help the students solve problems and make good decisions. Additionally, you will be adding tools to our light table center-which has been a huge hit. Having a variety of manipulatives allows children to explore the world allow them using different senses. Your donation of any size will provide learners the opportunity to grow.
