I teach in an all-day kindergarten in a large city in Rhode Island. My school has approximately 550 students, with more than 70% qualifying for free or reduced lunches. We have a high population of children with different ethnic backgrounds, many having limited English skills.

As a result of so much emphasis on the academics in kindergarten today, every minute we get for recess is so precious. This is the time that allows my five year-olds the opportunity to develop the social skills that are so important in school and in society. They also develop their gross motor skills as they run, jump, catch and throw. Learning to share and be creative is another outcome of recess time. Let us not forget that they also have fun!!! All of these aspects are going well. Children are also doing a nice job of taking responsibility for putting all playground equipment in the proper bags or spots on the cart. The problem is that the children are little and the bags and particularly the carts are big. There are 2 flights of stairs between the schoolyard and our room.

Having a shed right in the schoolyard would make packing up quick and efficient. Children would simply load the carts and bags like they are doing now and then put everything right in the shed and lock it up. Time would no longer be wasted getting out and coming in and it will certainly be safer now that toys won't be carried up and down the stairs.

Your help will ensure that my children will get the maximum social and physical benefits during their recess time and have a place to efficiently and safely store all playground equipment.
