Mrs. Andrews from Richardson TX is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hip Hip Hooray for Recess! (ATPE Member)

My students need fun and engaging recess equipment to help get out their wiggles! The recess bundle is full of basics, and I think the giant chess, connect 4, and stacking blocks would be a hit!

My Students

My students are from a Title I, high poverty school. They are naturally curious, passionate, and love to create. They love to take control of their learning and think out of the box. My job is to help my students for the real world through thought provoking problems and projects. I want my students to be critical thinkers that soon will be solving real-world problems in the next decade.

Our magnet school has a great learning culture that makes collaborative learning extremely meaningful.

They quickly learn to accept each other's diversity and learn to value it as an asset to learning.

My Project

Our students have 30 minutes of recess, which is great, but we need life sized games and some super-sized motivation and equipment to get some of us engaged and moving around a little more.

We are wanting some larger-than-life games to play on the school grounds, field, and even in the school garden!

Anything to get us moving around! Some of the games can also be used for indoor recess rainy days for a good brain-break as well. The students will love having many options to choose from for their recess, and have fun getting healthy at the same time.
