My Students

My students need activities that will entertain and challenge them during choice time. I teach an amazing class of twenty-five, first graders in the South Bronx.

Many of my students are English Language Learners and children with special needs.

Most qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. All of my students are creative, thoughtful, and eager learners, and much of their knowledge this year has been expressed through their play and self-exploration. It has been so exciting to see them fully engaged each day as they learn through collaboration and inquiry with their peers.

My Project

Do you remember being stuck inside for months at a time during the cold winter months or the rainy spring weeks? My students need activities that will entertain and challenge them during this recess time. Free play during recess times helps these students learn to work toward a goal, interact with other students, play on a team, and resolve disagreements. We currently don't have enough games or activities in our classroom that students can use during indoor recesses. This makes our free play time a dreaded event rather than a time they can have fun. Let's change that for my students! With these materials, my students will have the opportunity to get their creative juices flowing. They can learn to make things with the Play-Doh, and kinetic sand. I am also requesting dolls and magnetic building pieces.

My students love to engage in creative play.

Please help them to see that there are fun, productive, and challenging things to do indoors! Your generous donation will be treasured in our classroom every day! Thank you so much for your support! It is greatly appreciated.
