Mrs. Chamberlain from Concord CA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Dance, Dance, Dance the Wiggles Away!

Help me give my students an outdoor audio system for dance parties (and other events) that can serve as an alternative recess activity.

My Students

I work at a wonderful, family oriented school Title I Program Improvement school with awesome students! The majority of our families are considered to be low to low-middle income with many living below the poverty line. More than one-third of our students speak English as a second language.

Our school offers extra assistance and enrichment when needed.

We have a part-time intervention teacher who spends 100% of her day on student academic intervention. Our school is lucky enough to have three Autism specific classes with students who mainstream into general education classes throughout the day. We have a resource class for special education students and for those who need extra help, a garden teacher (paid for by a generous grant) that works with the students on the Next Generation Science Standards, volunteers who come read with and/or tutor our students several times a week, and many teachers who run intervention and enrichment classes after school.

My Project

Many students, especially the little ones, do not always care for traditional recess activities such as kickball, soccer, or basketball. Sure they like to jump rope, or play on the play structure or tether ball. But they often long for something else to do at recess.

A mid-day dance party on the playground would help kids get their wiggles out and exercise in a fun, exciting way!

After all, who doesn't love a dance party? A portable speaker system with Bluetooth technology would allow any teacher with a phone to play music for the students so they can dance at recess. It can also be used for outside assemblies and events such as our yearly Halloween parade.
