Ms. Horgan from Washington DC is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Preschoolers Studying Oral Health

My students need realistic props to engage in higher-level play during our make believe play block.

  • $175 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Preschool is a fun place to play and learn, while making lots of friends. The students learn through playing at centers, while participating in 6 different themes throughout the school year. We are about to start our Doctor/Dentist theme!

I teach 15 wonderful students from various backgrounds.

Many of my students are native Spanish speakers, so realistic props are important while teaching them in English. They love to play, so most of their learning happens during our make believe play block and they're excited to become doctors, nurses, dentists, patients, etc.

My Project

I'm requesting a realistic teeth model and large tooth brush for the dental office play center. This will allow the students to reenact exactly what dentists teach at their offices. I'm also requesting a dental hygienist uniform, doctor's office kit and the game operation.

I greatly appreciate you considering help fund this project because it will help my students tremendously to have access to these props.

Preschoolers and English Language Learners learn best through play and dressing up in their roles.
