Hooray! This project is fully funded
The class I teach is Kindergarten. Currently, I have 23 students in my class, and they come eager to learn at school every day. Our district is asking for us to have some purposeful play activities for our Kindergarten students. I would like to have some blocks for my classroom so the students are able to explore blocks during this purposeful play time.
Our school just celebrated 130 years of being in existence!
We are one of the oldest rural schools in Colorado. The students we serve here are about 50% free or reduced-price lunch and about 30% ELL students.
Blocks help to stimulate a child's mind physically, intellectually, socially, and they also help students build and expand their language while discussing with their friends and teachers what they may be building. Children love to explore blocks and build elaborate structures using them.
I want my students to be able to grow their minds and learn cooperative play through the use of building blocks.
Giving students the opportunity to play with blocks has many educational benefits, which will help them throughout their school careers. Children can learn to solve a variety of problems with blocks, for example if objects will fit into certain spots. They can also learn science concepts by learning whatever they are building have to be built a certain way or it will fall or collapse.
I would like to have the opportunity to allow my students to have more educational experiences through block play.
