Mrs. Cubbage from Seaside CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Pretend Play for Preschool Special Needs Students

My students need a dollhouse, farmhouse, and similar pretend play items that help increase their receptive vocabulary abilities, improve their independent play skills, and most importantly provide opportunities to engage in hands on learning!

My Students

Our group of student range from having mild disabilities to severe disabilities including Fragile X, Down Syndrome, Speech and Language Impairments, and Autism. The majority of our students are from low income families who have limited access to books and school supplies. My students start attending speech therapy at three years old which means that I am often my students' first experience with speech therapy and school. I want my students to love their first school experience and be excited for learning!

My Project

At a young age, children use their imaginations to engage in pretend play, not only for fun and entertainment, but to learn about the world around them. As a speech language pathologist, I also know how to provide play based therapy to increase vocabulary, facilitate expressive language, and narrate each child's individual thoughts and ideas using descriptive and rich language.

The materials I am requesting includes a dollhouse, farmhouse, animal puppets, and a full pretend garage.

These items help make the difficult process of learning common vocabulary, and daily routines a blast!
