My students need educational toys and activities like flannel board stories, dramatic play materials, puzzles, and sensory tools to enhance their learning experiences in our classroom.
Our school is a Title I school with about 80% of our students on free or reduced lunch. Our students have a wide range of exceptionalities that include but are not limited to developmental delays, cognitive impairments, language impairments, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Oppositional Defiance Disorder (ODD), ADHD, ADD, and Down Syndrome. Our students come from diverse backgrounds and cultures, but yet they all show a similar love for learning. Our students walk in the door excited to learn and explore each day. At our age group, we learn through hands-on experiences and play. Play allows our students to use their imaginations, build social skills, and learn to cooperatively engage with others in a child friendly learning environment. Play is important for children of all ages and developmental abilities as it helps them build on their cognitive abilities, fine and gross motor skills, language development, and social emotional needs.
The materials I am requesting are going straight to the kids. These materials will be out on the shelves and incorporated into our weekly themes to enhance my student's learning opportunties/experiences.
All of these toys and activities are going to have a sense of purpose in our classroom to help us learn and grow through play.
The Create Your Own Farm set, ABC cookie puzzle, alphabet groceries, counting cans, and Farmer's Market color sorting set will be used in our dramatic play center to bring academics into play with the alphabet, numbers, colors, and hands on learning. The sensory shapes and handy scoops will be incorporated into our sensory bins and areas to allow my students who need sensory input the opportunity to fulfill that need.
The flannel board stories will allow my students to pull apart a story with visuals and learn how to sequence events from a story. The Bizzy Buckle toy will allow my students to practice basic life skills that they will need in the future. The puzzles I am requesting will help my students practice their hand eye coordination, fine motor skills, and the globe will be a great tool to incorportate into my social skills/social studies activities.
