My Students

My 40 Pre-K students love to learn and move. Coming mostly from backgrounds of poverty, they need lots of activities to get to where they need to be for kindergarten. Our classroom needs lots of different activities to keep their interest going.

Our school has over 90% receiving free or reduced rate lunch.

Most of our parents don't have the extra income to purchase materials that help them get ready for kindergarten. By the time they get to preschool, they have some lost ground to make up for.

My Project

Most of my preschoolers live in the city and don't have a lot of access to safe places to play outdoors. Our school has a large, fenced in playground specifically for our preschoolers. The playground currently has very little playground equipment, but it does have a long sidewalk that would be perfect for riding tricycles.

Using these tricycles and the gas pump will work out my students' large muscles as well as their imaginations.

The ability to switch to a different type of tricycle and/or become the gas station attendant will keep the play fresh and exciting. My preschoolers will not want to quit playing!
