Mrs. Branham from Moraine OH is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students Tricycles and Safety Gear to promote Gross Motor Development
A school family of over 100 new special education and regular education preschoolers joins our school each year! Students are from all backgrounds and range from age 3 to age 6. Some of our students are special education students who are being educated alongside their peer mentors while others learn from their homes due to safety concerns. Many of our special education students have unique needs due to their health or abilities. They vary in their abilities and skills. Some of our students have more developed gross motor skills than others. We have found that motor breaks help students prepare for learning.
Activities are planned to provide students with a variety of motor activities to address the different muscle groups, stimulate brain activity and address their developmental levels.
We currently service 16 children per classroom. Teachers are supported by special education team members such as occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech and language therapists. We strive to do our best to have many learning opportunities, with variety, for our students and families! Our bikes and shed will be shared by our school family.
Help provide my students with bikes and safety gear to address the locomotor skills. This will address the Ohio Early Learning Standards Physical Well-Being and Motor Development Domain. Under the strand of Motor Development, Large Muscle: balance and coordination and under Physical Well-Being, Safety Practices, Body Awareness and Physical Activity will be addressed.
Riding tricycles helps improve gross motor skills by working on coordination, endurance and strengthening.
Bike riding also helps with full body sensory awareness along with visual stimulation. It also helps children with their attention and focusing on the task given to them.
We will need bikes in 2 different sizes, and tricycles of two different sizes due to the children we have that vary in size and skill requirements as well as safety helmets. These bikes will combine with cones for games to help with eye coordination. Our one gas pump will assist in pretend play to stimulate their imagination and turn taking.
