My Students

We love soccer and need ways at recess to get our "Play On"!

My students are inner city kids, with limited safe space to play in their neighborhoods.

They want to move, they love soccer and would really benefit from soccer at recess during the school day. We are working to improve our physical fitness scores during Physical Education and soccer is a great way to improve our cardiovascular endurance throughout the week! When we improve our overall health and wellness we will also soar in the classroom .

My Project

We need ten soccer goals to "soccerize" recess! The mesh soccer goals come in a flat bag for easy storage and then carried over the shoulder out to recess. When the bag is unzipped, the goals pop up to a size of 4 feet wide by 3 feet tall. I envision my students racing to pop up the goals and get 6 or 7 soccer games happening at the same time on our large open field. We can get many children all increasing their heart rates and their daily activity through the sport of soccer during their dedicated 30 minutes of recess. We have soccer balls in our classrooms and a huge desire to run and play! Classroom teachers can easily divide up fields with the visual of the goals and improve safety and ease of monitoring by having more students engaged! These soccer goals will help with implementation of our recess curriculum I created and provide the specific outlet of soccer that so many of my students love!

Please help us feel the soccer love and explore our passion to move!

As we fill most of our day with reading and writing, we also need to learn more about ourselves and our classmates through active play, cooperation and appropriate responses in social situations. When we get fresh air and increase our heart rates, our brains are processing all that information learned in our classroom and we feel free! It has been said that the work of childhood is play and we want to get to work!
