Mrs. Phyllis in the Life Skills room from Lebanon MO is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bounce and Swing to Success

Help me give my students balance equipment, so they can build their core strength and balance to prepare them for their first ever Special Olympics Young Athletes competition.

My Students

If you step into our Life Skills room you won’t hear our kids use the word can't. I teach in a special needs class of eight students. My school is such a loving environment where our students come from diverse backgrounds but act as one big family.

Our students abilities range from medium to low gross motor skills.

As a class we've decided to participate in the Special Olympics Young Athletes program. This will help our students develop stronger gross motor skills, and to be proud of their accomplishments.

My Project

Our children have varying abilities, so we wanted to focus on the abilities that they could improve. A platform swing can be used by all our students even if they are wheelchair bound or have gait problems. They will build their core strength and balance while having fun.

Our children that have gross motor delays and balance disorders will have fun bouncing on the balancing pony.

They will build strength in their arms and legs while enjoying a fun exercise.

Each of the items we have chosen will aid our students in preparing for our first ever Special Olympics Young Athletes competition in Lebanon, Missouri, and prepare them to continue their efforts with the Special Olympics as they get older.
