My Project

My preschool special day class students are learning to take turns and play together with classmates.

Toys and materials for this project will help us promote shared use of items, turn-taking and collaborative play in our classroom.

A fun animal bowling set and parachute will be perfect for our whole class to use together during circle time. A ball and race car ramp, engaging tabletop games, shape sorters and activity balls will offer fun activities for turn-taking during both our small group centers and facilitated play times in class. Other toys such as a cake stacker and toy train will promote both shared use of items and imaginative play.

Toys and materials in this project will be perfect to help capture student interest and promote their social learning in play with classmates.
