We have three kindergarten classrooms in our school and would like to incorporate more opportunities for students to participate in purposeful play. It would cost a lot more money to buy items for each classroom, so we would like to create one room, which everyone could use. This would give us the chance to get more items into students hands. We want to create specific areas for student interests so that all students can find some type of activity in which to engage.

We all know that kids learn best through play. Play fosters creativity and brain development. A healthy brain needs the opportunity to explore and engage with the world around it. Children’s cognitive skills are enhanced during play. Through authentic play experiences children are imagining, problem solving and cooperating. They use language to communicate their ideas and demonstrate knowledge of skills they have learned and some skills they are still practicing.

Here is a list of items the Kindergarten team would like to purchase.
