Pre-K Engineers Build Structures

My students need fine motor games such as the Creature Builder and the Ultimate Fort Builder for a creative learning center.

My Students

I have a Pre-K at-risk classroom located in the Appalachian Mountains. This Pre-K classroom helps bridge a gap in preparing students to be successful in kindergarten. My students enjoy coming to school and engaging in exciting learning activities.

We are in need of fine motor games that include a large-scale size fort and creative building block materials.

This new learning center will help develop oral language skills as they work in small groups together. These items will help develop fine motor skills which will help the children with pre-writing skills in my classroom.

My Project

The Creature Builder and The Ultimate Fort Builder will develop hands-on exciting learning in my Pre-K classroom. Let's give some children who could not afford these amazing activities a new learning center.

This fine motor project will bring delight to some very special at-risk kids.

Can you see the delight that this new center creates when they will be able with own hands design and build a fort. The pride the children have when they are able to make creative structures as part of their hands-on learning. Thank you DonorsChoose partners for reviewing my project that will allow my children to work together to build structures that will show their creativity and they will be proud of their accomplishments.
