Play-Based Learning Engages Libby Kindergarteners

  • Local Champion: Libby K-12 Schools
  • Date Funded: March 1, 2023
  • Grant Amount: $15,150

Not all children learn in the same way, but unfortunately, the kindergarten curriculum at Libby Elementary currently lacks inclusivity for multiple learning types—a situation that contributes to classroom disruption and poor learning performance for some. One local teacher brought forward a potential solution in the form of play-based learning curriculum. Play-based learning satisfies a child’s need for social interaction with peers while helping them focus their attention and practice independence. Implementing the approach would provide an opportunity for the students Libby teachers have already acknowledged struggle with traditional classroom instruction, so school staff reached out to LOR for help. LOR’s funding will support the purchase of play-based curriculum and equipment to engage students with more inclusive and independent learning techniques.
