We would like to purchase a variety of movement and play equipment that are designed to promote fine motor and gross motor skills for our youngest learners. The traditional PE equipment is not available for our use. This equipment will be used within our classrooms, in the gym, and outside. The equipment will enrich various literacy and math activities to promote strong foundational skills.
This will benefit many students who do not have access to outdoor equipment at home to develop their gross motor skills.TK and Kinder students thrive when given opportunities for movement that enhance fine motor and gross motor skills. We hope to create a learning environment that promotes social and emotional confidence in our students.
Shortly after implementation of this program, we hope to see our students utilizing life skills such as team building, cooperation, sharing, and problem solving. We also believe with improved gross and fine motor skills, our students will gain confidence which will promote concentration and focus.
This equipment will be made available to transitional kindergarten, kindergarten and the state preschool students. Each classroom will incorporate these movement tools/equipment into our daily schedule.
All equipment will be available to all TK and kindergarten students. While primarily for TK and kindergarten this equipment will be made available to the state preschool students.
