Winding Up Some fun While Learning

My students need magna-Cars & trucks, Create & Design Drill kit and Snap -Bots.

  • $227 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students want to drive, that is drive around on a road rug. They want to have the space to move around and not have anyone in their way.

My classroom consists of 3,4, and 5 year-old pre-kindergarten children who come to school four days a week.

We work on school readiness goals. This means that children are ready for school, families are ready to support their children's learning, and schools are ready for children. The majority of the children in my classroom come from low-income homes, and this is their first exposure in a school setting. They are an eager bunch of children who strive to learn more everyday and explore the world around them.

My Project

My students will be able to pretend to travel around in vehicles work on fine motor skills with the drill set, and snap together robots. They will have the opportunity to take turns, share, and strength language skills. My students need more items to use in the block area besides just the blocks. They are eager to learn about robots and how to be builders.

My project will make a difference because currently my students have limited manipulatives in the classroom.

They don't have much to engage them and teach them how items work and how they are formed.

I want to allow my boys, as well as my girls to explore with vehicles and use their imagination. The girls in the class are reluctant to go into the block area and I want them to have new experiences. My students come from very limited resources and might not have blocks, building, supplies, or vehicles at home. I want to bring joy and learning to my students, before they have to grow up.
