Mrs. Cruz from Klamath Falls OR is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Kindergarten Skills = Life Skills...Come Into Our House...Our Dollhouse!

My students need and would love a new dollhouse in the classroom to help build their social and emotional skills and well being, as well as develop their parallel and partner play skills in Kindergarten.

* Future Writers and Artists of the World!

* The Scientists and Engineers of Tomorrow Learning Today!

* Working Hard to Grow Reading Skills!

* High Poverty Students

* Military Family Students

* Rural Oregon Community

* Diverse Classroom Community

The students in my Kindergarten classroom are a creative, hard-working, curious, thoughtful, and adventurous group of children. Always eager to learn the moment they enter the classroom as they look to the daily agenda to see what the day will be and then...we are off and learning with days filled with exploration, invention, reading, creative expression, practice, and thoughtfulness. I am looking to make their learning experience even more engaging by adding learning tools for the classroom through Donors Choose Donations.

My Project

The skills we have access to and learn in Kindergarten become our foundational Life Skills. Developing social and emotional skills in such a fast paced world becomes more challenging each year. I am working to put the "garden" back in Kindergarten this year. A garden grows beauty, life, and diversity. Social and emotional development and skills are an important piece of that amazing garden that Kindergarten grows. Along with reading, expressive writing, mathematics, and STEM, social and emotional skills are a vital cornerstone for developing strong life skills. A dollhouse in the classroom as a center rotation and free choice activity provides endless possibilities for social and emotional development. It can also help children bring our new social and emotional curriculum to life as they use the dollhouse to apply the new tools and strategies they learn in tandem with what they are learning during Character Education.
