Play, Laugh, Learn!

My students need a dry erase board for our morning meetings. This will help expand letter recognition, math skills and language skills. Other items will promote cooperative play, imagination and so much more!

My Students

As we start a new school year we are in need of some basic essentials to help us grow throughout the school year. Each year brings a new and exciting group of children who are eager to learn and discover so many new experiences and we want to help build on that excitement with our class this year.

Preschool is the stepping stone into learning for children and I want to make their first learning experience fun and exciting.

So with your help we can create a wonderful classroom for my students with these opportunities.

My Project

The items that we are trying to earn for our classroom such as a white board and dry erase markers will help us start our day off with our morning meeting with the children. With this piece of equipment they children will develop their language and social skills, writing (which develops small motor skills needed for so many other developmental areas), number recognition/counting, patterning, opposites, and many other areas of development. Magnet tiles, puzzles and kinetic sand will all develop fine motor, language, cooperative play, imagination, patterning, color recognition, building, problem solving and so many other skills. The construction paper, colored tape and paint dotters will develop creative thinking, fine motor, imagination, confidence, focus and a sense of accomplishment.

These items will greatly benefit our children in learning and having a successful school year with your help!

With introducing these learning tools to our classroom this year, it will allow us to help prepare our students for Junior Kindergarten/Kindergarten in the Fall of 2019. With your generous donations you will help bring so many smiles to our classroom as the children become successful as they achieve a new skill at school.
