Mrs. Burton from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Exercise Through Play Is What We Need Every Day

Help me give my students the equipment such as the Lakeshore Active Play kit which includes balls, jump ropes and hula hoops that they need to have fun and to help them maintain strong and healthy bodies.

My Students

Many of my students come to me with English as their second language. They are eager to learn and experience new things. The parents also want their children to succeed and be successful within the classroom. Students always want to please me as well as their parents.

My students are like sponges and want to soak up everything that is placed in front of them.

I want to keep that passion they have for learning in them.

My Project

My students only have the playground equipment, swings, monkey bars etc. to play on during recess. If they had access to balls, we could have organized games such as kickball and soccer.

The balls, jump ropes and hula hoops would allow my students to be more active during recess.

A more active body will lead to a healthier body. With this equipment, there will be plenty for all to enjoy and something for all interest. It is important for students to have fun at recess but this will help students who stand around at recess the ability to have the opportunity to move.
