Recess Rules with Basketball!

My students need a basketball hoop and 3 balls for recess.

My Students

Do you remember recess? My students love basketball, but do not have a basketball hoop to play with.

My students come from a diverse socioeconomic background in a Northern Californian school.

Many students do not have the opportunity to play on an organized sports team or even go to the park and play. They love to be active and to learn. Basketball is an interest to many of my students. They would like the opportunity to play and learn the game.

My Project

If given the opportunity, my students would thrive with a basketball hoop and balls. My students would learn a new game. They would learn how to play on a team and to share. The basketball hoop and balls would give them an outlet to channel their energy in a positive way.

Kindergarten has changed so much through the years.

Focus is more towards tests and grades. Kindergarteners still need to be kindergarteners. They need to learn to share and play with each other. These are key tools for life. Playing basketball will help encourage these behaviors.
