Groovy Shirts for our Afterschool Sports Team

My students need team shirts for their afterschool soccer team. Students will be able to create their own shirt for playing in. We also need more soccer balls to practice and improve our soccer skills.

My Students

"We are TK!" My students often chant at assemblies or walking through the hallways. I look at them with my head tilted sideways, since I did not even teach them that saying. They love being in TK, or Transitional Kindergarten, and love each other. I often joke that my class is very "kumbaya" since they all adore and respect each other so much.

I teach at a Title I school in Sacramento where nearly 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

My students are eager to learn and do their best. Their huge, smiling faces as they chant do not indicate what struggles our community faces. They love being together, and the community we have created in our room.

My Project

My students love having the chance to play sports during recess and PE. We are beginning an afterschool soccer team for students to sign up for which has been extremely popular! Students are so happy to get to play soccer with their friends and compete against one another.

To add to the excitement I am reaching out to get team shirts for my students and bring them a wonderful team-building exercise.

Together the students and coaches will get together and tie-dye tee shirts. We will then hot iron numbers afterward and students will get to wear the shirts during practices and games.

Students will get to keep the shirts and cherish the memory of our afterschool soccer club. I know students will not only love the experience of making their own shirt, it will make our club feel even more special.

We also need more soccer balls so that we can practice with the balls and improve our soccer skills. This will help make my students succeed in soccer.
