Recess is Important for Social Development

My students need recess equipment to encourage activity and interaction with their peers.

My Students

My students come from a close-knit community where education and family are valued above all. Their parents work hard to support their learning. Time outside of school is spent attending clubs and sports practices, working on their educational goals, and spending time with family.

As a group, these students are creative, fun-loving, kind, and motivated.

They continue to amaze me with their talents and insights both inside and outside of the classroom. We must do all that we can to support these future leaders.

My Project

Having recess equipment will help my students form their class community. Games like Jazzminton, football, kickball, and soccer allow students to play together and work through social situations in a positive manner.

The social interactions my students have at recess will positively impact their work in the classroom.

Learning to play together during unstructured playtime helps students understand each other as they work in collaborative groups in the classroom. Not only that, but both exercise and playing games have been proven to have a positive impact on student achievement in the classroom. Play is part of a balanced educational program.
