Mrs. Pipp from Sheboygan WI is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students games to build literacy, math, social and fine motor skills.
Inquisitive, creative, enthusiastic, and yes, even a bit dramatic! Like all young children, my kindergarteners are naturally curious and have a sincere innocence in their love for learning. They are passionate about the smallest of discoveries.
My students come in eager to learn and to be a part of a larger school community they have yet to experience.
I love having the opportunity at this unique grade level to play a role in fostering this love for school and allowing it to grow each day.
Our school is located in Wisconsin nestled along Lake Michigan, half way between Green Bay and Milwaukee. Our city is growing but continues to struggle with issues of poverty, homelessness, and trauma. My students in particular have been hit hard with these issues, yet they show up every day ready to do the best they can with what they have.
We love asking questions, reading stories, problem-solving, and getting our hands on materials. We engage in a variety of learning formats including morning meetings, small group work, guided and interactive lessons, play-based learning, and social and emotional guidance. It's all about a love for school and the family that is our class!
This project consists of a variety of math and literacy games for students to use in small group instruction or center activities with peers. There are also some instructional materials to enhance literacy and math instruction. These will be used to model skills and strategies and for students to participate in the core instructional part of the lesson by providing hands-on materials.
I believe we are more likely to learn when we enjoy what we are doing and are having fun.
Therefore, the games and materials in this project were chosen because of the learning experience they will provide for students. Students will be learning through play which is powerful. Not only will they gain the math and literacy concepts, they will also be learning how to socially interact with each other in small and whole group settings. This social piece is equally important and opens them up to the experience of learning from each other as well, not just from their teacher or the activity itself.
