  • My Class Needs playful materials to uncover the curriculum

    Launched May 26th, 2017 Project Deadline October 23rd, 2017
    Classroom Size 22 Students School Size 372 Students

    My Students

    My students are a group of kind, social, & curious learners. My Grade 1 class has a variety of complex needs & it's my passion & purpose to engage all children in learning. My class thrives from creative & playful learning opportunities that develop thinking, communicating, & social emotional learning. I believe learning is best when connected to handson experiences. Being in an inner-city school we are limited in our funding and resources to deliver the learning environment all students deserve

    How will this project impact them?

    School should be a joyful experience where children are honoured for their background knowledge & given the materials to develop new knowledge. As John Dewey said "materials are the texts of the early learning classroom" My students will be using the materials throughout the day for free exploration as well as hands on lessons. While the students are building, playing, exploring, & creating they will be uncovering the curriculum.These materials will help students make connections to the core competencies (thinking, communicating, and personal/social awareness), Through providing strength based opportunities for students to develop and reflect in these areas the core competencies will be uncovered in a meaningful and authentic way. Developing the core competencies are an integral part of our new curriculum (K-12) and these resources will provide the environment where learning flourishes.
