“These youngest explorers of our world thrive in environments filled with thought-provoking materials.” – Ms. Anna, NYC Preschool Teacher
However excited they may be on the first day of school, new preschool students can’t quite understand the importance of the year ahead. But the significance of this moment certainly isn’t lost on their pre-K teachers. Early-childhood educators know that they have just 180 days to build a foundation that sets these students up for a lifetime of learning.If the (over 40,000!) preschool projects created on DonorsChoose.org so far prove anything, it’s that teachers are more than up to the challenge. The creativity and passion expressed through these projects is incredible, and we’re so excited to share some of our favorite projects with you on a Pinterest board below. We hope reading a little more from these amazing teachers might spark an idea that turns into your next classroom project request.(Bonus!
