Ms. Schmidt from Fuquay Varina NC is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Our Sand & Water Toys are being Stolen--HELP!

The cost of the Rubbermaid storage shed purchased from Lab Safety Supply is $285, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

A HUGE part of the kindergarten experience is play, so during our center time, we explore various hands-on stations to help develop observation and experiential skills necessary later in life. Our outside centers include a sand table and a water table, which easily transforms into a rice or bean table, both including toys, sponges, and other small manipulatives to play with. Sadly, our sand toys are being taken out of the sand table after school, and I'm afraid that the small water table will suffer the same fate if left outside. I'm asking for a small Rubbermaid storage shed (that can be locked!) to keep the sand and water manipulatives/toys and the water table safe. Please help keep "play" in the kindergarten experience by considering this request. Thank you!
