Recess Fun With Big Bubbles and Tetherballs

Help me give my students two tetherballs, two big bubble kits and big bubble solution to make recess engaging and fun again.

My Students

My students come excited to learn in two languages, as part of our Spanish Immersion Program that was adopted ten years ago to meet the need of our cultural and linguistic diversity in our district. Six years ago, parents got organized and successfully implemented uniforms at our school. This has helped our students to stay focused on learning and it has provided a positive learning environment for each student.

I am enriched and blessed by my students' diverse cultural, linguistic, and economic background.

More than 85% of students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.

All of my kindergarteners students get the amazing and unique opportunity to start learning in English and Spanish from K to 12. Close to 25% of my students' first language is English, and 50% of my students' first language is Spanish, and 25% speak another language. They share the journey to be able to graduate from a high school bicultural, bilingual, and bi-literate; it all begins in my kindergarten classroom.

My Project

Kindergarteners are full of energy, creativity and curiosity. For many of my students, recess is their favorite time of the day. Unfortunate, our equipment is long gone and we are down to a couple of balls, a few jump ropes and hula hoops. Recess is not as engaging and fun as it used to be. They are complaining that they are getting bored at recess and consequently, they are missing many opportunities to be physically active.

By adding big bubble wands and two tether balls to our playground, my students can be more physically active and enjoy recess even more.

This is the time of the day when they have endless opportunities for ways to use their creativity, be curious and burn some energy.

With the tether balls, my students will have the opportunity to interact positively with peers, problem-solve and learn a new fun game.

The benefits of being more active at recess has been proven to help kids do better cognitive and can better focus in the classroom as well as promoting healthy lifestyles.
