  • My Class Needs manipulatives to spark creative thinking and imagination

    Launched August 24th, 2017 Project Deadline December 31st, 2017
    Classroom Size 19 Students School Size 600 Students

    My Students

    My students are in Kindergarten in a middle income area. Our population is diverse and challenging as there are many different backgrounds and socio-economic groups. Our school catchment is exploding in population as this area has been inundated with many new townhome and condominium construction projects. Our school population is over 700 which is double the population our school was built for. As a result, our resources are being stretched too thin as we try to accomodate so many students.

    How will this project impact them?

    My kindergarten students need manipulatives so that they can learn through imaginative play. I am hoping to make the learning in my classroom more inquiry based so that my students are learning important concepts in language arts and math through play. One of the benefits of inquiry-based learning is it allows children to develop a variety of skills such as questioning, observing, planning and collaborating. These are skills not only vital to Kindergarten, but skills that are vital for life-long learning.
