Mrs. Holt from Casper WY is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning Through Play

Help me give my students fun and exciting ways to learn letters, numbers and think critically with hands on activities that are engaging for all.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I have the opportunity of working with my students for two years. I teach a kindergarten and first grade loop. This year, I have 18 eager kindergarten learners that show up ready to work each day regardless of lack of food, shelter, clothing and unstable living conditions. I feel privileged to work with these children for two years. I get to develop strong relationships with them and see them grow academically and socially while providing a fun and safe place to learn.

My Project

The phonics and counting games will be used to teach both literacy and math through play and hands on activities. The materials purchased will help children use critical thinking skills and strategies to problem solve while learning foundations skills of reading, writing and number sense.

This project supports students in a non-traditional way of learning to help build and maintain social and emotional growth through play with peers.

Students will use verbal and nonverbal ways of communication to express needs and wants. Children will work collaboratively and learn from one another through engaging activities that support learning in the classroom.
