Ms. Richardson from Sullivan MO is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need balancing material to help them build a strong core, which will help them to stay focused in an educational setting.
I work in a small rural low-income school district. My students are faced with many challenges in and out of school. It is my job to make their time in my classroom as enjoyable as possible.
My classroom is an Early Childhood Special Education room, the majority of my students have developmental delays in one or more areas of development.
It is my responsibility to provide them with a wide range of learning experiences. Being a very energetic class of 3-5 year old children, we do a lot of hands on and movement activities. It is my goal to continue to upgrade our classroom material, so I can continue to give them meaningful educational experiences through play.
Having gross motor material in my classroom will help my students build core strength. Strong core strength leads to a strong foundation for children. Poor core strength can cause poor posture which can also affect gross motor and fine motor skills.
Motor movements help children develop the skills necessary for learning readiness.
Balance beams help students with balance and coordination. Having a Catch-a-ball will help develop hand-eye-coordination. Hoops can be used for various activities to teach jumping activities to help develop motor control, improve equilibrium response and develop hand-foot coordination. The Rock Around will strengthen muscles, coordination and build confidence
