Excitement is in the air! Woo Hoo! I can't believe our new playgrounds are finished! We have been needing new playgrounds for quite some time now. Two of these playgrounds for our school were fully funded and built by donations and time from our community. Just last school year, our school started selling these adorable t-shirts to begin the process, and now both playgrounds are complete after one month into this new school year.
Aren't they adorable? (Excuse the wrinkles)
We are absolutely amazed at the huge donations from our community to help support this need. To make the savings even greater, workers from the community came together during one weekend to do a "community build." Two playgrounds were put together and ready to play on the following week. We just held our ribbon cutting for the playground yesterday. The students are so excited and I think we teachers are even more excited than they are. Take a look at this amazing playground!
I can't wait to use my "Playground Read and Write" and my FREE "Opinion Writing: Favorite Playground Activity" with my students while relating to our new playground. The "Playground Read and Write" could be used as a read aloud in kindergarten followed by discussion early in the year, and then they could actually read it and fill in the blanks independently later in the school year. First graders could complete it independently now.
