Help Pre-K Use Fine Motor Skills

Help me give my students Legos to build, be creative, and work on fine motor skills.

  • $275 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I teach eighteen, wonderful children in the New York City area. Many of these children come from low-income families and do not have the resources to enhance their academic skills.

These children are fun-loving and full of life and they deserve to have the resources they need to help them succeed in school.

We have a great school but due to budget cuts, it's hard to get the funds for the materials we need in the classroom. You can help make a difference in these children's' lives.

My Project

My students need to work on their fine motor skills. One way they can do that is by building using small pieces. I never knew there were so many different types of Legos.

My children want these Legos for our block center.

They picked out the four sets they wanted the most. They will work together to construct different places in a community. It’s also a great way for children to help one another and use teamwork. It will help enhance their vocabulary. These Legos will also go with our community helper theme. Thank you for taking the time to read my class's proposal.
