Ms. Figueroa from Jersey City NJ is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Welcome to our Baby Nursery!

My students need additional props to use in our make believe "Nursery" center for our hospital theme such as the hardwood changing table.

My Students

My pre-k class class consists of 15 students that come various socioeconomic backgrounds. Many of my students are first generation Americans and therefore have a variety of first languages other than English.

Our program puts a major focus on building knowledge through make believe intentional play for our four and five year old students.

The students are given exposure to what people do and say in various themed settings. My students engage in daily activities that were designed to support the development of literacy, math and science skills at the same time as self-regulation skills. Most of our learning takes place in small groups and partnered activities, which engages children in building social relationships as well creating a positive classroom environment.

My Project

The hardwood changing table, baby clothes, bottles and blankets will assist my students in remaining engaged in their intentional make believe play.

These props will make a big difference in student play as they practice various skills such as vocabulary, literacy and sequencing to name a few.

They will learn new vocabulary words that are associated with a baby nursery including but not limited to crib, diaper, and onesie. Literacy skills will be practiced while students "read" to their baby as a means of soothing/putting the baby to sleep. Finally, sequencing skills will be practiced as students attempt to remember the steps in caring for a baby within particular scenarios such as feeding and diaper changing. My students will use the changing table to change the baby, clothes to dress the baby when it is being changed and bottles/blankets to put the baby to sleep.
