I'm a first grade teacher at an elementary school in San Francisco's Chinatown. The majority of my students live in Chinatown and do not venture out of the Chinatown area very much. You should see their facial expressions when we go the zoo or when they see the Pacific Ocean. All of my students are second language learners and only speak English at school. Also, 19 of 20 of my students receive free lunch. Children need a time to play with a ball. Besides the numerous hours for reading and math, students need physical activities also. 6 year olds need to learn to catch and kick a ball. My students do not know what it feels like to play with their own playground ball. During recess, they need to share two balls for 20 students. I am asking for 24 soft playground balls for my class so we can have a comprehensive Physical Education time, and each student would not need to wait their turn since each student has his/her own ball. We are limited in our playing space, so I'm requesting soft playground balls so if a child accidentally hits another child it will not hurt as much. Just imagine the hours of fun you will provide to 20 students! Kicking a ball, bouncing a ball, rolling a ball, and catching a ball!
