Ms. Anne from Brownstown MI is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Preschool Creativity at It's Best

Help me give my students enough materials for small group projects so they can each have their own materials with which to work because they can no longer share materials.

My Students

I teach a diverse group of children ages 3-5 years old. The students in my program qualify based on low income.

For many of the students coming into my classroom it is their first experience in school.

It is my job to provide opportunities for them to develop a love of learning. They learn mostly through play. They have many opportunities to make choices about the areas in which they plan to work. My students are always busy exploring, creating, building, imagining, socializing and growing into thinkers, learners and doers. It is a joy to witness the excitement, on a daily basis, as the students put their minds to work. My students are so young yet they are very capable learners.

My Project

A couple of times during each day we break up into small groups. We divide into three groups, each with it's own teacher and lesson plan. The materials I have selected for purchase include items we will need to add to our current supply in order to provide each student with his/her own materials during each activity. Since we have to be mindful of spreading germs in this age of COVID19, we aren't allowed to let the children share materials.

These materials will help make it possible to continue planning activities that the students enjoy as well as activities that help foster creativity and the love of learning.

I wish to provide opportunities for my students to grow and learn through hands on activities using individual tools and supplies.

Thank you so much.
