My students need Playdough to inspire the creative side of learning!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are sweet, creative, inspirational and hardworking. They come to us from many diverse families, all with the desire to be amazed!
More than half of our students come from low income households.
Our budget is small and the needs are great. With over 700 students sharing the same resources there never seem to be enough.
We are a linguistically diverse school with many students speaking a language other than English as their first language. They learn by doing and by experiencing the world around them.
Students spend six hours a day at school. First grade students need more time to wiggle, laugh, create and move.
Learning is hard work for a 6-year old When 6-year olds work with Playdough the tension of the day fades from their faces and smiles take its place.
They are totally engaged in their play. Whether it be creating a monster or making cookies for their imaginary bake sale they are engaged and interacting with their classmates, able to use their creativity, engineering skills, and language skills to act out their project.
Six-year olds need as many hands on experiences as they can get in the traditional classroom. Playdough will allow them the kinesthetic experiences they need to feel successful!
