My students are very excited about learning and come to school every day with open minds. Completing simple, everyday tasks in a classroom requires many materials that my students and their families simply cannot afford.
They look forward to our routine and learn the classroom procedures quickly and effortlessly because it is what they crave.
Having materials within reach is an essential part of learning so that the creative process is not interrupted by looking for a pencil or eraser.
These materials will help our whole first grade team teach PE with our students next year. First graders are still learning about personal space and different ways to move their bodies safely. Soft projectiles like bean bags and foam dodge balls make mistakes less painful. Cones, floor markers, and arrows keep students in their own space and show them which way to go.
Having the right equipment will help keep our activities fun and developmentally appropriate.
Jerseys help students know who is on their team and who is their opponent. The ball cart will help keep the materials organized, yet easy to access.
