Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a first grade teacher. Getting to mold such young minds is a wonderful occupation for anyone to have. The students I teach are not always given the best learning environments at home due to their financial and parental limitations. They not only lack some of the critical learning opportunities and support at home, but they also are limited to the amount of social developments needed early in life. As a result, I do my best to fill those gaps. My students would greatly benefit from a floor puppet theater and puppets. This dramatic play area would serve as a crucial center in our classroom. The theater and the puppets would be a wonderful place for my students to further develop their social and language skills. This theater would promote language by allowing the children to use the puppets and speak for them. The theater would also promote cooperation and good character as the students would work together during the dramatic play times. As you can see, the floor puppet theater and puppets would advance my first graders?linguistic and social abilities. I am a first grade teacher in an urban school in a metropolitan area in Charlotte, NC. My children come from limited finances and many two parent working homes. Many of their learning and developmental experiences come only from the school. As a result, I do my best to provide the most beneficial and necessary learning experiences for throughout the year. All 21 of my students would benefit from and have daily access to the dramatic play center that would include the theater and the puppets. The theater would serve as an area for the children to work and learn that solely focuses on social and linguistic developments. The children would use the theater and puppets each day during their independent work time. This would allow numerous hours in the classroom to be spent on further developments for my students. The floor puppet theater and puppets would allow my students to advance with social skills as well as linguistic abilities. Since language plays such a critical role in early development, it is necessary for my students to have exposure to such opportunities to learn. The floor puppet theater and puppets would allow my students to not only grow in the academic fields, but also acquire personal success through social development.
