My students need recess equipment such as jump ropes, stilts, a carpet, and playground balls.
I teach first graders at a public school in an urban setting in Northern California. My 22 six year olds come from wonderfully diverse backgrounds. We are also an inclusive school so every class has children with special needs.
Our beautiful school has a bleak and barren recess yard. There are only a few balls, but they are basketballs and the kids like to throw and kick them....ouch it hurts when they hit you in the head. The kids just run around and chase each other instead of playing games together. Children live for recess time. Sixty kids come out to play at recess time. All they want to do is play. They wait for recess, then they get out on the yard and have nothing to play with. They get into trouble because they have nothing to play with.
How wonderful for the children if they could go outside for recess and have fun equipment to play games with. We need colorful bouncy balls, a hopscotch carpet, jumbo pick up sticks, jump ropes for one or two. With your generous and thoughtful donation to our recess equipment project our students will enjoy their playtime and be ready to work when they return to class.
