Mr. Rogers said, “Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play IS serious learning.” Distance learning is especially hard on young children with disabilities who require structured, concrete, hands on, functional play-driven and interactive experiences. Families are unable to duplicate the opportunities available in the classroom, so this grant funds the creation of ‘leaning binders’ – 3-ring binders chock full of tools and supplies, along with instructions for many, many engaging games and activities. Osmo Learning System’s award-winning educational game system is also part of this grant, helping teachers to enhance all subject areas through hands-on activities.
