Ms. Carroll from Grand Rapids MI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the opportunity to expand their imaginations and connect their experiences to the real world.
Our classroom is special because we have a large group of diverse children. These children come from low income families. Most of these families do not get the opportunity to explore outside of their environment. As the teacher of these children, I provide opportunities for them to explore different senses.
Our classroom provides a secure environment for children to use their imaginations and creativity.
These products will help enhance the environment, and will give my children the opportunity to explore their imaginations in many areas.
The donations to this project will help my students learn differences about the real world while exploring hands-on materials. The materials I have chosen for our dramatic play area such as the bath time set, the doctor play set, wash and trim dog set, changing and bath time set, and the laundry basket play set will help my students connect their learning experiences to the real world. The laundry basket will help them learn to fold clothes and sort clothes by different colors, sizes, and shapes. The doctor's play set will help them learn how to care for someone if they are hurt or sick. All these activities will help the children expand their cognitive, fine motor, and sensory abilities through play.
Most of my children do not have the opportunity to experience new materials in their everyday life.
New materials create new ideas and help their imaginations grow. Through play children are developing many skills that include social, fine motor, gross motor, cognitive, and language skills. These skills are key components for development in young children. The potato head's and magnetic dress-up dolls allow the children to make connections about body awareness and facial features and let them begin to understand that everyone is different in their own way. These materials will provide our classroom with hands-on experiences for the children to learn, grow, and explore.
