My classroom is a large 30 student kindergarten classroom with both Special Needs and English Language Learners. We are in an urban school district that is trying to make many positive changes. In the last few years, unfortunately, we have been subjected to a budget freeze. We are growing and learning in a small, tight-knit, school community that fosters a safe learning environment. They are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and questioners. They are our future, and I want to give them a great start to their long successful school career.
These recess toys will be making a huge difference in these kindergartners year. Imagine going outside for recess at 5 years old but only having an empty field to play on! No playground, no play area, just a field and whatever your teacher has bought for the year like chalk and a few deflated balls.
This class has special ed students and regular ed students all working together in and out of the classroom.
Giving the students recess toys including lawn games, balls and jump ropes to play with will give them more chances to engage with their peers and build those social skills that are crucial for Kindergartners!
