My students are active and eager Transitional Kindergarten children who approach each day with a positive attitude and a joyful smile. They are learning how to navigate our classroom and the school community for the first time as they embark upon their first year at our suburban elementary school. Our class is a self contained room in a school population that includes an additional class of TK students and seven Kindergarten classes. There are also approximately nine hundred other students from first through fifth grade in our school.
Our students need defined places to play our playgrounds. There are bicycles, balls and partner games, but we need activities that encourage cooperation and imagination. By creating a community of playhouses and outside structures, we can provide students with physical places to use their creativity and play together. Our students need opportunities to communicate, negotiate and imagine themselves in a variety of roles that encourage teamwork and expressive language. With the addition of houselike structures, students will have multiple areas to create and work together to role play, solve problems and negotiate with each other. Houses will give them areas that allow them to practice and have fun at the same time!
