Ms. Drummond from Bronx NY is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning While Building Social Skills

Help me give my students fun, mentally stimulating, interactive and engaging activities such as sight word stamps and LEGO kits so they can play with partners as a reward for working hard throughout the week.

My Students

We have 100% free lunch, and many of the students live in shelters and face many challenges on a daily basis. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

They like to move, they love to read, and they love lots of positive attention.

Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical." From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. I am constantly looking for ways to inspire and build a love of learning in all my students.

My Project

I want to reward my students with some time on Friday afternoons to engage in mentally stimulating activities that are fun and allow students to work together to further develop their social skills. They are constantly bombarded with technology, and I want to provide them with some new ways to unplug and use their minds in a creative and stimulating way.

This free play helps to foster learning opportunities for students both socially and emotionally.

My students learn best while using a variety of tools, strategies, partnerships and resources. I want to provide them with stencils, stamps, pens and pencils, LEGOS, colored papers and other fun supplies to help them create and explore.

I believe that these materials will be a great reward for them and they will look forward to getting all their work done so they can use these materials! They'll still be learning and developing skills without even knowing it!
