Hooray! This project is fully funded

My classroom has not had any new furniture for many years. We need a block shelf to display the blocks so that the children can get them out easily and have a tidy place to store them. We would also like a skyscraper and coliseum block set to inspire their designs. My kindergarteners love to play and build, and this shelf would really help them see what they can use to create castles, houses, towns and more. Building teaches them social skills as well as cooperation. Ninety percent of my students receive free lunch and over 65% are second language learners. The block and toy shelf I am asking for is designed to accommodate blocks and block accessories as well as other learning materials. The students and I would really love to be able to have a few sets of blocks and to be able to store our blocks neatly and in a place where they are more accessible. Who knows, one of these Kinders could become a famous architect one day!
