Playing to Learn, Learning to Play

My students need Alphabet Activity Balls, a Numbers Ring Toss Game and color cones.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Preschool isn't what it used to be! These amazing 4 year olds are in school all day long. Though their little minds are ready to learn, they need to have time to play and to get their wiggles out too! We need these active learning supplies to accomplish both tasks at the same time.

We are preschool boys and girls in an inner city school.

We go to school for a full day and our teacher thinks we are super smart! We are curious, busy, and learning everyday. Besides math and reading stories, we love music and singing, cooking and playing outside.

My Project

With these supplies we will be able to do lots of moving around the classroom or outside. The activity balls come with games that we can learn to help us with our letters and the sounds that go with them. The cones will help us play games like relay races and 4 corners. The ring toss can help us learn numbers and their value by telling our teacher what number we circled, and even what number is higher or lower than the one we circled. We are excited to play and learn!

Please support these young students as they do what children do best, learn through play!

We will make good use of these supplies. Your donation will help us to develop our brains and our bodies together. Thank you!
