My Students

My students are the most amazing Kindergartners! They are creative and love to learn! They are always excited to try something new.

My students love using their imaginations.

I love to listen to them pretend! I learn a lot about them by listening to them play! Play is such an important aspect to a child’s ability to learn. With play they are able to learn socially, emotionally and academically. They also use and develop their fine and gross motor skills.

During the pandemic, our children were not able to have the social experiences that they would normally have. Play allows them to gain the social and emotional aspects that some have not had the opportunity to explore.

Having more items in their purposeful play centers allows them to grow in all of these areas and is vital in their development.

My Project

When children play, they learn. They solve problems, think strategically, and relate to others. Play helps children learn and love learning. Play is how children thrive. By providing more opportunities to play, children are able to experience a more hands-on approach to learning.

By providing our class with dramatic play materials for our centers as well as storage, my Kindergarteners will have many more opportunities to learn and grow.

These items will help foster their imaginations and help them develop many different skills. They will be able to work with others and learn how to problem solve. The items will give them the opportunity to learn about different community helpers by playing with the dramatic play toys provided for them. They will also have storage tubs that we will label with each dramatic play box so that they will be able to keep the items together and in good condition.
