Ms. Lillian from Flushing NY is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need a new teaching easel with a book ledge for story time!
We have a diverse group of Pre-K students who are ready and excited to learn! With your support, they can grow, learn, and spread their excitement for education into their future academic career. Pre-K is a special place for children to learn how to get along with others while building self confidence and self esteem. They learn how to socialize with others, manage disagreements, and build key communication skills needed in the future.
We are curious and active learners who love to make new discoveries by exploring our surroundings.
It's hard for a four year old to sit and listen for long periods of time. That's why we learn through play! Our classroom materials are essential to our learning process. The materials we play with allow us to role play, reenact what we have learned, illustrate, create, build, rebuild, count, and manipulate water/sand flow. Sometimes we don't understand the purpose of an object so we play around and test our theories. Sometimes we'll think some more and try out a new ways to use our materials. We make observations and discuss what we notice. Through our discussions, we draw conclusions that help us to make sense of the world.
For this upcoming school year, my easel is asking to retire after working tireless years as a white board, storage unit, painting easel, chart-hanger, office supply provider...the list goes on. Much like tired bones, its metal legs are sore from carrying hundreds of books and miscellaneous materials. Its wheels are also stiff from the constant movement, squeaking and stalling as it tries to wheel around the classroom. Most of its white board sections are stained and scratched. Quite honestly, our easel was looking forward to retiring last year to a lovely condo in Florida, but the trooper decided to stick it out for one more class because those kids were so stinking cute.
In an effort to send my current easel off to sunny beaches and a happy retirement, my class is asking for a new white board easel with baskets for storage and a book ledge for our big book.
Our new easel will be fully armed and prepared for a long, rewarding career in Pre-K.
