Mrs. Louia from Lexington NC is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Play With Sand and Water.

My students need these sand and water tables to help them be able to enjoy sand and water play both indoors and out doors. We will use two of these tables outside and two inside. .

My Students

I am a teacher in a Title I school. My classroom is made up of EC children and typically developing students. I have students who have special needs and behavior challenges. My classroom also has students who are learning English as a second language.

My students try so hard to learn new things!

They work hard every day to learn the new things that are needed for school. They love playing in centers outside as much as they do inside. They need help from everyone to make this happen.

My Project

These four station tables will allow the students to have a chance to explore with sand and water both indoors and outdoors.

We will use two tables outside.

One will be used for sand and the other will be used for water. This will allow use to explore both while enjoying the great outdoors.

We will use the other two tables indoors. One will be used for sand and the other will be used for water play. This will bring the enjoyment of sand and water inside.

With the help of these four tables the students will be able to enjoy sand and water play indoors and outdoors on a daily basis.
