  • My Class Needs Play-based materials to discover and learn!

    My Students

    I have a curious and excited group of Grade 1 students who love to learn! Our school is located in an inner-city neighbourhood. Our children come from all different backgrounds, but many families struggle to get by. My students love to explore and discover. They enjoy being outdoors and seeing what nature has to offer. I hope to bring different experiences into my classroom, and have a classroom environment that provokes thought in my young learners.

    How will this project impact them?

    The resources requested will allow for a more discovery oriented classroom environment. The materials will be used directly by students through exploration and play. By incorporating open-ended materials, my students will take ownership of their learning and will make their own discoveries. Through play, students are learning to think critically, communicate with others, create/plan/execute, persevere through challenges, express themselves, etc. These are skills which will follow the children throughout their life and help them to become independent thinkers and life long learners!

    ** Payment Processing Fee: An average of fees charged to MyClassNeeds for processing donations (e.g. credit card payments through a secure server). We have worked hard to select the most secure option for the cost.

    *** Optional Donation: An optional donation to support MyClassNeeds which is calculated at 15% of the project’s price tag. The optional contribution supports the work we do to engage teachers, build awareness, and to generally run MyClassNeeds. To do that we need a world- class website supported by strong business systems and processes that improve over time.
