Marvelous Magnatiles For Marvelous Play!

Help me give my students magnetic tiles to play with during indoor recess!

My Students

Kindergarten is so much fun. Our students learn in many different ways using all of our senses and multiple intelligences. We use a wide range of techniques to help all the students succeed no matter what their level. Our students attend a Title I school. Most of the students come from families of low socioeconomic status, with over 70% of our students receiving free lunch. Our school is also one of the most ethnically diverse schools in our state. Our school is a caring community of successful learners, which can be seen through collaborative, student project-based​ learning in and out of the classroom. Kindergartners in our classes love to work with hands-on materials and have many different opportunities to practice a skill before it is mastered.

My Project

Unstructured play is such an important aspect of the growth of young minds. Recess is key to this unstructured play and is imperative for day to day learning. Sometimes, there are unpredictable indoor recess days when the weather is a factor. Instead of students choosing technology every indoor recess day, they need cooperative, creative thinking inspired activities. Through play, students will develop their social and emotional development, language skills, metaphorical and abstract thinking, fine and gross motor skill development, creative thinking, and problem-solving abilities!

These Magna-tiles will help students in six kindergarten and first-grade classes!

Using them they will be able to have materials to support them during indoor recess. It will help the student develop imagination, creativity, mathematical thinking, and social and emotional growth. While building and playing with their peers, children expand their expressive language and learn to cooperate. Your donation will give our students many valuable opportunities to learn through cooperation, exploration, and play. We thank you in advance!
