My classroom is a special needs preschool classroom within a small school in a rural, farming community. The classroom is a loving, busy, and ever-changing environment. I have an energetic and eager bunch of 4- to 5-year-olds who are ready to learn. My students have a variety of specific needs such as autism, cerebral palsy, speech, fine motor, sensory, behavioral and developmental delays. We spend our days learning what we need to be ready for kindergarten and how to live functional lives.
Everything we learn at school, we learn through doing and take it in with all of our senses.
We are so eager to learn how to be independent through life and play skills we engage in at school. Our classroom requires that all of our materials meet a variety of student needs and developmental levels. When the learning my students do is meaningful to them, it sticks with them in amazing ways.
We are asking for building materials that we can use both indoors and outdoors. These building materials and sheets will allow us to be creative to build forts, puppet theaters, reading nooks and more. These materials are so versatile that the possibilities are endless. These materials are easy to use and will allow all of our students to work together and include all as they build and plan.
We can not wait to build and explore with these materials in our classroom and on our playground.
This will allow our students to work together, plan, and problem solve while having fun with engaging building materials. Thank you for giving us amazing and engaging materials that will help us learn and grow. We can't wait for all the fun that this will bring.
