FUN at RECESS

My students need games like Dynamo Domino Set, Zobmondo The Lady Bug Game and PlayMonster Yeti in My Spaghetti to bring some fun to their day at school. We have a lounge in the cafeteria that each class participates in daily with a rotation each week.

My Students

Our playground is very plain with not much for our students to play. Our pavilion was damaged in the devastation of Hurricane Harvey with many other damaged things that I will not mention since I am only to write 2-3 paragraphs.

Our campus houses two grade levels which are fourth and fifth graders.

At this time last year we housed not only our two grade levels, but we also housed the sixth and seventh graders for six months due to the severe damage to their school which houses sixth-eighth graders. We actually did not start school until early October due to Hurricane Harvey.

We would like recess equipment so our P. E. department does not have to use their equipment.

My Project

Our lounge consists of board games, game systems, and movie dvds. After the students eat their lunch, then they may choose any of the games etc. offered in our lounge. Once all the 4th and/or 5th graders are done with their lunches, then the students in lounge have the opportunity to stay inside at lounge or they can choose to go outside.

Many of our students lost all their belongings due to Hurricane Harvey, so the lounge is a way the students can have fun without feeling stressed or sad.

We would like the recess equipment so our P.E. department does not have to use their equipment.
