Welcome To The Sutter Speedway!

My students need various types of tricycles to use during recess to help release energy and work on gross motor development.

My Students

Kindergarten students have a lot of energy and need a safe and fun outlet to release their energy!

Our new K students come from a variety of backgrounds and academic needs; however, they all play the same and are extremely active!

Although many of our students participate in sports or other related activities after school, there are a number of students who do not. Therefore, recess is a necessary time for active play. With a newly painted pretend road on our blacktop, we want to ensure that our kids are moving. This will, in turn, help them be more focused on learning when they come back into the classroom!

My Project

Students will be able to ride tricycles together and pull one another in a wagon while following the pretend road on the blacktop. Beside helping with gross-motor skills, riding tricycles and the wagon will promote team-work and following rules. Students will need to go one-way, stop at the stop sign, and wait their turn on and off the track. They will also learn responsibility by putting their trikes away at the end of recess in the "parking lot". These are key skills to learn in kindergarten.

Over the course of our year, one hundred and five students will have access to these tricycles and wagon.

The various types and sizes of the tricycles will allow every student a choice that best suits their body and comfort level; some tricycles are smaller, some larger, and some are closer to the ground. The "Sutter Speedway" will encourage active participation and give students the chance to play and release their energy, thus creating a better learning environment both in and out of the classroom.
