Mrs. Ratajski from Camden NJ is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students manipulative materials that will give them hands on learning experiences with storage to keep them organized and accessible.
Camden, NJ has been ranked as one of America's most dangerous cities. The majority of the students in my class receive free or reduced-priced lunch. Despite the challenges my pre-school inclusion students face living in this environment, they come to school eager to learn and grow. For many students, school is their safe place, and I want to create the best environment possible for them to feel safe, secure, and cared for. They are the future of this city and have the potential to improve their community.
My students need manipulative materials to give them a marvelous hands on learning experience.
Manipulatives improve the development of hand-eye coordination and hand strength, sense of spatial awareness, promote problem solving skills, creativity, and so much more.
The manipulatives in this project will also target specific academic goals. The magnetic puzzles will also encourage letter, numeral, and shape identification. The nuts about counting will give them the opportunity to practice counting, matching numerals to quantity, and quantifying. The playstix, waterblocks, and magna-tiles allow open-ended building with countless ways to put things together and encourage the children to use their imagination and creativity.
