My students need equipment to enhance their creative playground play. I am requesting a variety of equipment; jump ropes, sand tools, hula hoops. The cart will help us move these items to the playground.
Do you remember blowing bubbles in the backyard as a kid; running around trying to pop them? Or maybe moving those hips around and around trying to see how long you could keep that hula hoop up? Those play experiences are what childhood is made of. My Kindergarten students crave that kind of play. They need play equipment.
I have an inventive group of Kindergarteners that turn found items into playground toys.
I've witnessed my students bury each other in a pile of mulch, pretending to be at the beach. Joy pours out of their faces when they are pretending. I want to provide them with a cart of playground equipment that enhances their pretending.
My goal is to provide a cart and equipment to enhance their inventive play on the playground. My students attend a Title I school where needs are high; encouraging play experiences that foster imagination is just what they require.
With this equipment you will be making a difference in my students play on the playground; jump ropes can become snakes, hula hoops can be used to create obstacle courses or drive a steering wheel, sand toys will be used for a pretend day at the beach.
There is extensive research that these play experiences make a difference in early childhood development. I need your support to make this happen!
