Playground Proposal by Claire and Kaitlyn

“We need some new stuff on this playground Mrs. Kynigou,” I said.
“Well, why don’t you ask the students in class what they want, then graph it?” said Mrs. Kynigou. I thought it was a great idea so I started right away. I knew I needed some help so I asked my best friend, Kaitlyn, if she would help me.
She replied, “Yes, I’d love to help.” So we started right away. First, we asked Mrs. Kynigou for a class list. Then, at recess we asked our fifth grade class what they wanted on the soccer field for recess. The options included tether ball, foursquare court, hopscotch, balls, hula hoops, and jump ropes. Then we graphed our results. We realized we should ask the two other classes what they wanted. We did the same thing for Mrs. Maratou’s and Ms. Evloyias’ classes. We graphed everyone’s results on a big graph. Then, we took measurements of the four square court and drew where we wanted to put it. We made a plan and we’re going to post it on the blog. Then we’ll see how much support we get and how many people agree with this.

Thank you for taking your time to read this I hope we can get some equipment on the soccer field!! If you want more stuff on the soccer field comment on this story!!!!!

  1. Dear Kaitlyn and Claire,
    That was an outstanding story!
    I think that you did a great job!
    It’s super nice of you to take all of your time and effort to help all of the kids have fun; It’s very generous of you, and I hope that you succeed! I LOVE your plan!
    Nice work,
    Your friend,
    Maggie D. 🙂

  2. Dear Claire,
    Your writing was really persuasive. Also, the poster you made with Kaitlyn was very good too. I would like if sometimes during our recess time, Mr. Theo or Dr. Galamas would let us have their dogs, so we can play with them and take them on their walks. If not everyday, at least several times a month. Our classmates really seem to enjoy that.
    Great job!
    Your Friend,
    Maria

    1. Dear Maria,
      Your idea is perfect. It doesn’t require any money. It would also would be great exercise for the dog and everyone enjoys it. I will see what I can do to make it happen.
      Your Friend,
      Kaitlyn

  3. I enjoyed listening to you reporting on this project during my visit to your classroom earlier this week. I hope that your work is appreciated and that you will receive some additional activities for you to enjoy during your play time.

  4. Dear Girls,
    This is such a great initiative you took! I love your drawing of the backfield and how you designed where everything should go! Can’t wait to see what feedback and suggestions your classmates have.
    Ms. Evloyias

  5. Dear Claire,
    I loved your drawing of the backfield! I also really want to have some more games/stuff at the playground.
