My students need a trampoline and gross motor equipment to enhance physical development.
Anyone who has ever been around a 3-5 year old will most likely agree they just don’t stop moving. My classroom is no different. This group of 15 students loves school, are ready to learn, and love to be on the move. While our outdoor country space is ideal for students to move but what is missing is indoor, designated
classroom space to move.
My student show me the need for this space in many ways such as taking the balls from the ramp area and starting a game of catch or chasing one another around the room in a fun game of tag. They set up mats in the block area to jump on and create obstacle courses. Music and movement is by far a class favorite.
Over the past two years I have seen the need for movement throughout the day grow and it feels like time to make classroom environment changes to support this need.
My mission is to set up a classroom motor area to supplement our outdoor time to give children the chance to move in the hopes that the children in my classroom start out life with an appreciation for physical health!
I hold the strong belief that education should include the whole child. Too often school is son strictly academic that other areas of development can be overlooked to make time for preacademic work. One area I would like to be better able to support is physical development. While we have a good amount of outside play time at school I see children looking for more ways to express themselves and learn in physical ways. Young children are drawn to learning through movement and I would like my classroom environment to reflect a range of opportunities for just that.
Physical development is crucial to children’s learning and growing and with less time for children to enjoy the freedom of outdoor play at home (due to many factors including but not limited to: busy working parents, increase fear of outside dangers, increase in screentime, adult scheduled extracurricular activities) I believe that it is imperative that school provide a space to move!
I believe that all student deserve a space to exert their power, especially those whose extra energy can often be labeled as “distracting” or “excessive” at school. By teaching children, beginning at a young age, how to listen to and respond to their body’s cues I hope to instill a life long love of exersize and health as well as acceptance for differences.
My preschool classroom is a busy place and while we have daily outdoor play time many students crave more movement throughout their day. I believe that having a designated area in the classroom for just that would benefit all of the students and would be life changing for others. Thank you for considering this project.
