  • My Class Needs hands-on manipulatives to develop their social skills

    Launched October 13th, 2017 Project Deadline December 31st, 2017
    Classroom Size 19 Students School Size 379 Students

    My Students

    My kindergarten and grade one students are a diverse group, most of whom are English Language Learners. They are excited and eager to explore the world around them. They enjoy play-based learning and are engaged when given the opportunity to experiment with an ample amount of hands-on materials.

    How will this project impact them?

    The resources I am asking for will be invaluable to our classroom! Many of my students are English Language Learners and most of them have had little or no preschool exposure. They are learning how to “play” and are working hard on building their vocabulary every day! It is my hope that these hands-on learning materials will spark both creativity and curiosity in our classroom. These resources promote purposeful play-based learning and inquiry, which is what the Kindergarten program centers around. Having access to these open-ended materials will help my students develop their problem-solving skills as well as their oral language skills. Giving students the opportunity to pursue their passions and interests through inquiry and creative play will allow them to deepen their understanding about the world around them.

The optional contribution supports the work we do to engage teachers, build awareness, and to generally run MyClassNeeds.
