KinderBabies: We Build It, They Will Come!

My students need a great set of building bricks and base plates so that they can create great structures. They will use the writing paper to write about and describe the structures they build.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are a wonderful and exciting group of 4 and 5-year-old boys and girls, in an ICT (integrated collaborative teaching) classroom. This means that 40% of my students are in special education, and the rest are in general education.

We are a Title I school and work hard to ensure that everyone learns and succeeds.

I want them to have everything they need and deserve to have to make their school year exciting and fun, as well as productive and successful throughout the entire year.

My Project

My students LOVE to build things. Using these building bricks and base plates will help them build amazing and creative structures throughout the school year. Connecting play and literacy, my students will write about and describe the structures that they build using the different types of writing paper so that they can become wonderful and creative writers.

Build It, They Will Come will help my students on so many levels.

They will learn to be great writers as well as creative and imaginative engineers while they socialize and play with their classmates. It is amazing to see how much they will grow through the use of these materials.
