Our children come from a range of backgrounds including African, Moroccan, and African-American. Our classroom of 18 is housed in a community center.
This special group of children love one another and learn so much from their interactions together.
The boys and girls in our classroom are learning to become more independent every day! We strive to make our classroom a place where children can feel safe, secure, confident and valued. By having a classroom that is organized and structured, our children are begging to take ownership of their environment and gain confidence in their ability to be contributing members of our school family.
This set of sturdy foam blocks will enable our students to design, build and redesign many sturctures each day in our block center. Through play building, the children cooperate, plan, build and take pride in their structures. The girls and boys think critically to create a plan for building, or they can follow a "blue print". By doing this, the children begin to make sense of structures and the physical world around them. A set of blocks is a classroom staple that will last for many years all while enduring daily use! It is amazing to see how creatvie students are, and how they bring their life experiences to their play and to what they create. Unfortunately, we do not have a set of foam blocks at this time. During the start of this school year, while we were setting up the room, a cutodian unknowingly threw our bin of blocks away and we were unable to recover them...So, it sure would be great to have a new set for the children to enjoy! Thank you for your consideration!
