Mrs. Hayes from Wilmington NC is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Back to Basics in Physical Education

My students need basic equipment. I am coming into a school with very limited equipment. Students need portable goals and basic cones for many different physical activities.

My Students

I am the new physical education teacher to over 400 students. These students come from a variety of economic backgrounds and are from various areas around Wilmington.

Our students not only vary in economic backgrounds but are ethnically diverse as well.

We also have a wide range of ages, as our school is K-8. As a physical education teacher, I often choose sports and games that appeal to a variety of cultures. I also enjoy teaching exercises that they will use as they get older and their bodies mature. When encouraging students to be physically active, it is important to do activities that are enjoyable. If students find the activities to be enjoyable, they are more likely to participate in these activities outside of school.

My Project

This is my first year at a school that needs a big physical education remodel. Much of the current equipment is outdated, worn, and broken. PE is supposed to be a place where students want to move. Equipment is a way to spark an interest in that movement.

Our school is in need of updated, new, and engaging materials to spark a love for physical activity.

My goal as a physical education teacher is to provide movement opportunities that influence students to move outside of my gym.

The goals and nets can be used for a variety of activities such as hockey, soccer, volleyball, badminton, tennis, and pickleball. The cones and domes are essential items used for organization in almost every activity taught.

My goal in my first year is to rebuild a quality physical education program with quality equipment.
