    Loose Parts for exploring our world Classroom Project at Morley Elementary
    Launched August 1st, 2017 Project Deadline December 29th, 2017
    Classroom Size 24 Students School Size 350 Students

    My Students

    My class is a mix of all types of students. We love to explore the world around us and create stories from the materials that we find. Many of the students come from difficult circumstances and I want to be able to let them explore and create in a safe and loving environment. My students enjoy hands on learning where they are able to manipulate and feel their materials and learn best when they are leading the way through their own interests and points of views.

    How will this project impact them?

    I want the students to be able to create and build structures and use loose parts to further their learning. With the purchase of different types of wooden blocks and pieces I hope that we will be able to explore many different curriculum and learning outcomes through play. The loose parts are used for language arts and story writing as well as math through counting, sorting and exploring. The students are able to build upon their interests and create imaginative stories in their play. Because many students come from difficult home lives I want them to be able to play and experience many different types of learning. Being outside and bringing the outside into our classroom allows students who generally never leave their apartments to experience many new thoughts and emotions. The purchase of the loose parts and natural products will connect with our nature walks and allow us to make new connections.
