Help me give my students a learning kit full of much-needed materials so they can engage in hands-on learning at home; materials include Play-Doh, Dot Art Painters, crayons, pencils, mini white boards and more!
Our amazing students from Boston's diverse neighborhoods are thoughtful, inquisitive, and always eager for fun and engaging learning opportunities. They have an innate love of learning and are so curious about the world around them. Our students love using a variety of classroom materials and resources to explore new concepts and ideas. For example, students recently learned about stable structures and tested their engineering skills in the block area!
We strive to keep learning fun and engaging every day and with the recent closure of schools for the remainder of the year, we are trying to maintain that love of learning in a new and unfamiliar setting.
This is a transition our students have handled remarkably well and we commend them for their continued hard work and perseverance!
With the recent announcement of school closures for the remainder of the year, our students have been thrust into the world of virtual learning. While there are many fantastic resources online, too much screen time is not developmentally appropriate for our young learners.
In addition to virtual learning and digital resources, we want to make sure our students are engaging in hands-on activities which is crucial, if not THE most crucial part of their learning and development.
These at-home learning kits will give our students access to hands-on material that they otherwise would not have. We want our students to be able to do meaningful, age-appropriate activities in the convenience of their own home. In other words, we want to bring a bit of the classroom to them!
