My students need a wide variety of building and pretend play items to increase problem solving, organization, and social skills.
Students in my school come from a high-poverty/low income neighborhood. Many students receive assistance for breakfast, lunch, school supplies, clothing, holidays, and even weekend back sack meals. We have a growing number of hard working English Language Learners in our community. Due to challenges at home, opportunities for discovery, creativity, and imagination are not always present.
Outside of the typical Physical Education, Art, Music, and Media, our kindergarten students attend an Extra Special each week that is run by the Speech and Occupational Therapist.
This "Extra Special" is incredibly special to these kids. They walk in each week excited to learn through play and interaction with their peers. These kids do not have enough opportunities for play and exploring, so once a week, we provide them with the tools they need for these highly important experiences.
My students need supplies that will aid in building beginning executive functioning skills. Our focus is to allow the students to utilize their imaginations to build and create things with varying materials.
Incorporating these activities will aid in the building blocks for problem solving, organization, visual planning, and social skills.
Unfortunately, many low income families do not have the means or time to provide activities for exploring and creating. Therefore, our students are missing key skills needed for planning, organizing, and problem solving as they get older.
Our hope is to provide them the time and supplies to build these skills through play!
