Let's Play!

My students need outdoor toys such as hula hoops, a kickball set and a horseshoe set for our day on the field at recess. We rotate from a field area to a yellow and blue jungle gym. These items would make field days a blast!

My Students

Our typical day in the classroom begins at 7:45 and is non-stop until lunch and recess at 12:30. My students work so hard throughout the day, and look forward to recess after lunch. When we have the field as our rotation, many just walk the track since recess supplies are not provided by my school.

This year I have a classroom of eighteen students.

There are ten girls and eight boys in my fourth grade classroom. Each student is very active and enjoys physical activity. Our school is an arts magnet school that specializes in teaching curriculum through the arts.

My Project

My students will use the requested materials for physical activity during recess. We are not provided with a recess kit, and many supplies that I have personally purchased have dwindled down significantly through the years. It is my hope that these newer supplies will engage my students and allow them to enjoy recess on the field rather than the two jungle gyms much better! The materials I requested are mainly group/team games. This will teach my students patience, cooperation, leadership, fairness, good sportsmanship and taking turns.

With newer supplies for recess, my students will be able to participate in team building games.

My students will be able to interact with their peers in a positive manner. My students will learn cooperation, interacting socially with peers, fairness, good sportsmanship, and patience.
