Ms. O'Brien from Springfield MA is requesting instructional technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

“Our Greatest National Resource is the Minds of Our Children.”

Help me give my students the opportunities to grow. These skills boost children's confidence, increase their ability to build healthy relationships with others, and help them as they adapt to new environments and rising expectations.

My Students

Butterflies ready to spread their wings!!!! My students are amazing 3 and 4 year old boys and girls that are developing their basic life skills, independence, and knowledge in an inclusion preschool in the inner city. Each student is unique, special and beautiful. They are ready to experience the joy of learning. My classroom will provide a safe and nurturing setting that recognize children's varied abilities, interests, needs, and learning styles. I believe children learn best through meaningful play and hands on experiences.

My Project

These learning materials will promote Language and Literacy development. They will help children understand and communicate through listening, talking, reading, and writing. These skills will create growing communication skills to learn new concepts and help each child reach full potential in all areas of life, develop self-esteem, and provide the experiences from which knowledge is constructed. It is extremely important for preschoolers to have meaningful and engaging lessons because it allows preschoolers to create themselves through purposeful activity during the most important years for learning.

With the use of magnetic boards, letters, numbers, and interactive software programs children can explore, ask questions, and develop skills to think more complexly, make decisions, and solve problems.

As young children explore, ask questions, and create, they improve their thinking skills. Reflecting on and using information lets your child understand the world around him. Children get a deeper understanding of a subject when they can make connections across several content areas. This kind of deeper, interconnected learning helps prepare children for kindergarten.
