Mr. Nieder from Bronx NY is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Give My Students the Best Shot to Learn!

My students need help to be motivated while learning! The Franklin Double Shot Hoops Pro will allow me to continue tutoring students during lunchtime while motivated them with exercise and breaks of fun!

My Students

My students live in one of the poorest congressional districts in the United States, not too far from the richest district. Entering sixth grade, they are already years behind their more affluent counterparts in both math and reading.

We don't let their zip code dictate their future.

Our goal as a school is to get our students to and through college. Our students are three times more likely to graduate from a four-year college or university than the low-income average. Our students work hard and have fun.

My Project

I rarely use my lunchtime to eat lunch or as a free period. Instead, I always enjoy taking 8-12 students upstairs to tutor them on math concepts they need help with. Although most of my students want to spend their lunchtime getting extra help, incentives and fun never hurt to encourage students to learn. The Franklin Sports Double Shot Rebound Pro Game will do exactly this! Not only will this game provide my students with some exercise during their rigorous day (7:30 am-4:30 pm) that never has gym class, they will love playing it while also learning math and improving their skills!
