My students need drawing paper, construction paper, play dough, and stampers to complete reading, language, and spelling tasks during centers.
Children learn best when they are actively engaged. Centers provide a rich learning climate for students to extend their learning through hands-on investigations for spelling, language, and reading lessons. Centers promote independence and allow students time for self discovery.
The school I teach at is a title 1 school where there is 100% free or reduced lunch status for the student population.
The grade level I teach is third grade and there are 35 third grade students. Receiving a donation for these classroom materials would enable students to engage in hands on inquiry during centers.
My students need drawing paper, construction paper, play dough, and stampers to complete reading, language, and spelling tasks during centers. Students will be able to become active participants as they participate in hands on spelling, reading, and language. Centers provide the opportunity to motivate students to take charge of their own learning. Centers emphasize the development of the whole child and encourage students to continually improve their emotional, social, and physical development, that we often forget how important these are. Classroom learning centers are a perfect place to promote these areas of growth in young children.
Many of the third grade students are below level in reading and are lacking in the resources at home to improve their reading skills.
By implementing centers in my classroom, the learning impact is endless. Students will continue to reap the benefits of centers during their educational journey.
