Ms. Boltz from Virginia Beach VA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Class is Recessed

My students need chalk, a soccer ball, a basket ball and other toys to play with at recess. When it rains, we need art supplies and activities for indoor recess.

My Students

I currently teach in a Title I elementary school serving the surrounding area. In our student population, 80% are considered to be of a minority race and 74% are economically disadvantaged. Most of my students receive free and reduced-price lunch, as well as food bags to help support their families over the weekend. We have a large transient population due to the military presence in our area.

My students have a wide array of social, emotional, and cognitive needs to be met.

I want to provide the best learning environment possible for their eager minds to grow! By creating projects on, I can provide different materials that my students need to succeed. Thank you for any and all donations!

My Project

My students work very hard throughout the day learning math and how to read. Recess is a great time for students to take a break and play. Many social, communication, and team-building skills are learned through play-specifically at recess. By providing students with the time and equipment for indoor and outdoor recess, they get to exercise their bodies and brains. The soccer ball and basketballs will let students practice being good team members. Chalk encourages creativity and lets students express themselves. During indoor recess, my students love to have dance parties with songs from our SoundBox Bluetooth speaker. Trays will help keep students art projects contained and less messy.

Indoor and outdoor recess is a constructive and creative outlet for students excess energy.

Many studies have been done on the positive effects from time outside spent playing. By receiving different sports equipment and art supplies, my students are encouraged to play and have fun!
