My Students

I am a teacher in a Title I school which means many of my students are at-risk, high poverty homes. This means many of my students do not get a good start in academics at home. This means I need to provide as many hands on creative learning experiences for my children because they do not have those opportunities at home.

Many of my children have low attention spans and are very active.

Many of my children are set in front of a TV with no interaction so they come to school not even knowing how to play or interact with other children. Academic skills as well as social skills are lacking in most of my students. My children are not exposed do different textures or experiences.

My Project

I would like to get these toys to help create a playful learning environment for my students.

Playing for preschoolers is important to encourage language and social skills.

Preschoolers learn better in a playful way. Using dramatic play toys children can imitate real world concepts in a playful way.

My students will be allowed to play with these during small group centers where they will recreate, imagine and role play. They will also give and take and share items. They will also use their imaginations and problem solving skills with these toys.
