My Students

When independent work time comes into our busy day the students love to take out the little people, blocks, trucks and dozens of other manipulative items. When they hear the chimes they know it is clean up time. They just can not get them back into the spaces where the boxes should be.

Our Title I school is located in a lower income neighborhood.

Most have a home language other than English and receive free breakfast and lunch. What our community lacks in money, we make up for with our high-spirited desire to learn. We work hard to build excitement and a true sense of learning in our community. The parents, students and staff are committed to education beginning with preschool.

My Project

Play is an important part of the Pre-K day. We learn through play. The students build language and math skill while they explore the toys available to them. The tricky part is finding out where to put them back. The boxes will be labeled for them and increase reading skills as they find the correct box. Math skills can be found as they sort the toys into the various containers and of course social skills are always there as we share and work together to clean up.

The storage boxes will provide many learning opportunities for the students in the S.R.L.D.P.

class to work on social development and academic skills. The children will take pride in knowing they have completed the task of putting the toys away without stress. Your donation of the 20 little boxes will become a great big part in their environment.
