Mrs. Krannebitter from Baltimore MD is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need these materials to engage them in meaningful, educational, collaborative, and FUN morning tub activities to get their day started right, without doing a boring worksheet!
I teach in a low-income area in a Title I school, and many of my students do not have access to educational materials/experiences outside of our school community. My first graders come to school with many different abilities and interests, but one thing is for sure, they are so enthusiastic to learn and be at school!
Play is still a very important part of a first grader's day, and I want to be able to provide them with experiences and learning materials to use while they play.
Using these materials to play, learn, and collaborate is very important to help build their social and emotional skills as well. It helps my students connect with each other while using these materials, and in turn helps build a stronger classroom community where they can all feel safe and cared for, not just from me, but from their peers as well.
I am trying to eliminate boring morning work worksheets, but still provide structure and learning into our morning routine! I will use these materials in morning tubs, where students work in groups of 3-4, and collaborate together to use the materials in their given bin.
By choosing materials such as magnetic tiles, Legos, building words games, story cubes, I Spy, silly sentences, and much more, I am incorporating the curriculum and beyond into a fun morning activity to get the students excited for their day of learning, and allow them time to connect with their peers, some of which they might not engage with on a regular basis.
The materials incorporate the curriculum and STEM into their morning routine, but it also gives them a chance to be creative and PLAY with each other!
Help us start our days off right with these fun and educational materials!
