Respecting Differences Brings Us Together

My students need adaptive equipment for dolls, diverse people for blocks, and puzzles showing all kinds of families to help them learn to respect people's differences.

My Students

The pre-k program at our school helps students prepare for kindergarten who might otherwise struggle. All students selected for this program are from low-income families, and for many of our students, it is their first experience in an English-only setting.

We know that all our students are capable of great things.

All of our students grow and accomplish so much in one school year; it is astounding! This year in pre-k will give them a better opportunity to be successful when they start kindergarten.

My Project

My students come from a variety of ethnicities, family structures, and abilities. These materials were also chosen to represent these varieties. People of different races can all be a family in the block area. Dolls can wear glasses or use a wheelchair in dramatic play. Students can assemble puzzles that show different types of families.

I want to ensure that all of my students feel welcomed, valued, and respected.

These materials will help my students in several ways. They will be able to recognize and role-play familiar situations with materials that look like they do. These tools will also provide a way for my student to explore and discuss differences is a safe, open atmosphere. These tools will provide opportunities for children to learn to respect and appreciate differences between people.
