Ms. Sloas from Booneville KY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Enhancing the Pre-K Playground

Help me give my students a better playground experience. The crawl and climb caterpillar along with a few riding toys and accessories will enhance our playground. Our playground doesn’t have a swing set, or riding toys.

My Students

I teach pre-K special education. My students are three to five years old, energetic and lovable. They enjoy hands-on learning experiences in the classroom and on the playground. They come to school each day with a smile on their pretty faces, ready to learn and participate eagerly in daily activities.

Our daily routines and activities are developmentally appropriate, hands-on and focus on the students' physical, intellectual, social and emotional development, and socialization skills.

We strive to ensure each child is kindergarten ready.

My Project

Pre-K playgrounds play an essential role in the development of the whole child. The outdoor material will enrich daily learning experiences, provide my pre-K students an opportunity to enhance gross motor skills, decision making skills, social/emotional growth as well as having fun each day during outdoor time.

The pre-K students will utilize each item requested such as the crawl and climb caterpillar, riding toys,lawn movers and basketball goal.

The material/toys will encourage the students to play together and eagerly await for outdoor time/playground. These materials will make a huge difference for my pre-K students. Our current playground doesn’t have much for the pre-K students to do or many enticing toys for them to use. This material will be appreciated, enhance their outdoor learning experience and be used each day.
