Play Is the Work of a Child!

My Students

My kindergarten students come to school ready to learn, play, and socialize! Kindergartners are busy by nature! They learn best through talking, exploring, and creating! They also need lots of practice developing their soft skills through pretend play activities.

"Play is the work of a child" Maria Montessori.

School gives my students a chance to interact with same-age peers and develop skills like turn-taking, communication, compromise, and conflict resolution.

My students love coming to school every day. Their enthusiasm for learning brightens my days! They are excited just to be at school, however, giving them new toys will show them how much I truly value their work (play).

My Project

A new play kitchen will allow the students to pretend and work together. It is short and compact, so that our classroom will be open and have plenty of room for students to move and interact.

Having a new doll house will allow for my students to be creative and practice socializing as they play together.

The dolls are bendable and realistic, which will also be appealing to the students.

The wooden trains and tracks we have requested will allow for endless imagination and problem solving, as they work together to build and configure the tracks.

The Hot Wheels tracks will be the perfect addition to our car collection and will allow my students to utilize their engineering and problem solving skills.

All of the toys we have requested will help my students problem solve, communicate, and socialize. I can't wait to see their faces when they see their new toys!
