Help Kids Play

My students need new playground equipment, like a parachute and basketball hoops, to safely play outside.

My Students

Many of my students don't live in a neighborhood where they can safely play outside. Do you remember how much fun recess was when you were young? With your donation you will be able to help my students play basketball, blow bubbles and whip a parachute high in the air.

My four and five year students are enthusiastic learners, full of energy and imagination.

What many have seen and endured in their short life amazes me and the resiliency they have is remarkable. The majority of my students receive free or reduced lunch.

My Project

Playing outside is a great motivator for my students. I see behavior change quickly for the better when they know that it is almost time to go outside. Right now, the area designated for my students is sad. The balls are flat, the equipment is broken or missing. The students deserve better than this! I love using the parachute in my lesson plans to teach colors, science and developing gross motor skills. The basketball hoops and balls help strengthen their turn taking skills.

Your donation will help me teach the whole child.

Four and five years old is a critical age for developing gross motor skills. Playing basketball, blowing bubbles and lifting a parachute help develop skills needed for the rest of their lives. For my 4K kids, work is play! Thank you for making my students feel special by giving them new equipment.
