My Students

I would love for each of my 55 Head Start and Pre K students to be able to successful learn to ride a bike before they begin Kindergarten. These students are sitting in the classroom learning all day except for 30 minutes that they come to my class. They love to ride what few trikes we have.

My Head Start and Pre K students range in age from just turning 3 to turning 5 after the cut off for kindergarten.

We are a low economic school. The trikes that we currently have are ones that parents have donated or the community has donated all of them are at least 2 years old with most being 4 to 5 years old. The students need to be playing and moving, riding the trikes focus on fine motor skills that most have not learned yet. It makes me so happy to see the difference in them scooting the trikes with their feet at the first of the year to them peddling and being able to control the trike by the end of the year. This is something that some of these students do not have at home and the only time they get to ride is here at school.

My Project

I see these students 2 times a week for 30 minutes each time, the trikes will be used at least once a week for all classes. Emphasis will be put on pedaling and controlling the trike as the student progresses. The trikes also give way for students to learn about spatial awareness, self control and directions.

The donation of trikes would benefit my students by giving some them chance to learn to ride a bike at an early age.

I have equipment for my older students that are age appropriate, but I do not have much for this age group. The students would have the ability to all have the success of riding trikes.
