Mrs. Underwood from Clyde NC is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students tools such as scooters, large hoops, colored cones, and spot markers to integrate into our daily learning.
Curious, energetic, loving, spontaneous, hands-on little humans. I get to spend most of my days surrounded by twenty-two five-year-olds who live in the mountains of Western North Carolina. We belong to a school where 100% of our children receive free breakfast and lunch due to the number of low-income students that attend.
While my students often come to me with limited background experiences they are always open and excited to try new things, play new games, and absorb any new experience I can offer them.
Five and six year old students move...a lot! I would like to have more active play materials to incorporate into their daily learning. Picture a child hopping across three hoops, each with a letter inside it and using this motion to sound out a c-v-c word. This is an activity that could be done inside as well as outside.
Imagine the learning that would take place if a child had to ride a scooter through an obstacle course that required them to solve a simple math equation or read a highly decodable sentence to proceed.
These tools paired with active children and creative planning could greatly increase the learning within a school day. With differentiated tasks even the children who struggle the most would be highly motivated because of the kinetic nature of the learning.
