Mrs. Boyd from Villas NJ is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning To Build

My students need more hands-on manipulatives such as building tiles and a portable basketball hoop and they like to play together.

  • $595 goal

This project expired on June 5, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My children are between ages three and five. They are energetic. I need supplies to keep them busy all day. They like to use hands-on materials and building with each other.

The children like to build and play together in the block area.

They love to use different types of blocks especially the magnetic tile blocks and the Legos.

When they are building, their imagination comes out and explores not only building, but they learn math, science, social studies and art.

My Project

If my project is funded, my children will build and learn about magnetic and how things attract. It will be great material for my students to learn and enjoy hands-on.

They will learn different ways to play, different ways to use their fine gross motor skills and different ways to travel and balance inside and/or outside.

They will learn hand/eye coordination, bouncing, catching and how to share.

When they learn different ways to travel, they can learn by running, walking, skipping, etc.

Learning fine gross motor skills, they can learn to throw, catch, bounce and pass with friends.
