Help Us Build Bigger Buildings and Bigger Muscles!

My students need large hollow blocks to build structures that they themselves can play in and also to help develop and build large muscle groups.

My Students

My students are big builders and big dreamers! Though they are new to building with blocks, they work together to build large structures, which eventually collapse under their own weight. With the addition of hollow blocks to our classroom, my students could build the buildings of their dreams!

My eighteen students are in a Reggio-based universal pre-k program housed within a public school.

The school is in a high-poverty area in the South Bronx. It is the first time to school for most if not all of the children, and they are working hard to develop the social and pre-academic skills that they need to succeed in Kindergarten, in elementary school, and in life!

My Project

My students will not only learn how to plan and build collaboratively, they will get to experiment with dramatic play inside the homes, castles, restaurants and rocket ships that they build. The blocks are so inspiring, as they can become larger structures, so that children will have no idea that they are working hard to haul, lift, and place these blocks.

This project is so important, as it will bring dramatic play alive for my students who spend so much time being entertained by television and video games.

It will help them connect to one another, and to their own imaginations, fueling their desires to connect and to create!
