Help me give my students resources for outdoor cooperative play! My students need materials to help them learn through play and interaction with others that their current situation may not allow them to otherwise have.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are a unique group of learners because they come from very diverse backgrounds, in a primarily impoverished area in the state of Indiana. My students belong to a Title I, free and reduced-price lunch school in Indianapolis.
For my students, Kindergarten is their first experience with school, and I want instruction to be safe, welcoming, and comforting for them.
By giving them a safe and inviting place to play and be a kid, WE can give them this experience!
Many of my students do not have preschool experience before joining me in my classroom, therefore a project like this can really help them gain the social skills they may be missing. With so much going on outside of school, I want school to be a place where they can communicate and learn to interact with others in order to advance their academic and social gains.
Vygotsky theory states that children learn best through play, so I am hoping to give my students this opportunity through outdoor sport toys, a classroom garden, and a storage bench for our kindergarten playground.
