Ms. K. from Chicago IL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Imaginary Minds Need Props

Help me give my students an amazing dramatic play area to express themselves through play. Students can learn social emotional and personal awareness through play. It helps them become part of a community and learn how to share.

My Students

My students are inclusive special education students who benefit from full-day inclusion with their peers.

The diverse students range in severity from autism, downs syndrome, and developmental delays.

They are eager to learn and enjoy making a happy day for everyone. They are learning social skills and personal skills that will be needed for lifetime learning and living.

My students love to learn and we are working on them to take ownership of their learning by becoming more independent and working with each other on daily tasks.

My students come from low income households, and deserve the best in their learning and education.

My Project

All of our students are learning how to be students and part of a community. To do this, dramatic play is necessary to act out scenarios, use their imagination, and utilize pretend scenarios to learn about themselves as well as how to act and surround themselves with others.

My students are 3-5 year olds in a blended program that includes students with diverse learning needs including autism and downs syndrome.

Imagination and dramatic play is part of being a child. The dramatic play furniture is essential for students to play, pretend, imagine, and become something they are not, pretending and inspiring about what they want to be, working with others, learning about how to do work, and just be a kid.
