My students need a physical education pack and equipment for outdoor recess. Physical exercise is extremely important and our young students need balls, jump ropes, and frisbees to help them stay active.
Motivated, hard-working, curious, and busy! These are the words that describe my 2nd graders. They work hard on most tasks and are easily motivated by hands-on activities and lessons. For many of them, there isn't a lot of motivation in the home to work hard or to be successful. School is their happy place and where their biggest supporters are. Most of them love to come to school, and several never want to leave in the afternoons.
We are a multicultural class of diverse learners in a Title I school.
Most of the students are on our free lunch program and receive free breakfast and lunch daily. Several receive bags of food for their families for the weekend from a sponsoring church in our neighborhood. Without those, many would go hungry until returning to school on Monday.
Our neighborhood surrounding the school is very supportive. Many of the business owners volunteer to read with the students, mentor them, or serve as a coach for them. Business owners partner with the staff to ensure the students know they have another person on their side.
My students are special and they know they are loved and cared for!
Often times our students need help in finding physical activities to keep them occupied during recess. Some even wander around the playground bored because of the lack of available equipment. There seems to not be enough equipment to go around, and may students don't fully participate because of this.
With new playground equipment such as balls, jump ropes, and Frisbees, there will be endless opportunities for our students to become more active.
More equipment will also lead to more students being willing to start up basketball games, kickball, and jump rope competitions. This could lead to more cooperative play and lasting friendships.
