Ms. S from Carnegie PA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We're Sensitive!

My students need more materials such as soft unit blocks or feel and touch fine sensory materials to help develop their fine motor skills and sensory awareness. We also need Dressing Frames, Touch & Feel Mystery Capsules, and Create & Design Drill Kit.

My Students

Our class is comprised of 17 energetic and curious 3-5 year olds. Several different cultures and family structures are represented. All of our students speak English, but several also speak another language at home. We serve low socioeconomic families by providing early learning activities, breakfast, lunch, and snacks for the children. Additionally, we provide health information and other supports for the families.

We consider everyone as part of our school family!

Parents/guardians join us once a week for Family engagement activities that connect to our learning objectives. Our parents also volunteer in our classroom and are an integral part of our school.

My Project

The sensory materials in our classroom are old and worn. We have had to dispose of several items this year so our supply is dwindling.

We are in need of new, colorful, and interesting materials to develop our students' fine motor skills and sensory awareness.

Items such as soft blocks, sensory games, lacing cards and dressing frames will allow students to explore a variety of items and to further develop their fine motor skills. Our three to five year old students love exploring different textures and doing hands on activities. We SENSE these materials will be loved by all! Thanks!
