I teach a wonderful, active group of kindergarten students in a close knit community in the Bay Area. Developing fine and gross motor skills and learning through play are important for five and six years and something we work on every week!
Our school budget prevents us from providing a PE teacher to our kindergarten students, so we've created our own weekly PE curriculum.
We have been trying to build up a collection of quality sports and motor development equipment that are appropriate for our young students.
The materials from this project would make a huge difference for our kindergarteners and would allow us to really expand our activities for our weekly PE sessions! I've included lots of open ended equipment, like a variety of balls, that can be used for so many different games that all children can participate in. Not only would this equipment impact our current class of kindergarteners, but I know we would take great care of everything so it can be enjoyed by future kindergarteners for years to come.
