Mrs. De la Cruz from Chino CA is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students and our kindergarten team new balls, PE equipment, and materials to build their motor skills and collaboration.
Creative, social, unique, bright, confident and insecure. These are my students. In a school where 90% of the population is of Latino background and a high number are English language learners, they are very different than other students in the same school district (and they know it). Many of them have parents who don't speak English well, have single parents or guardians, or live in poverty.
They are like me growing up.
We love to sing, dance, play, collaborate, paint, and stay active while we learn!
These are the varied and talented group I call my students. They may feel different than other students in our district, but they have the same potential.
Our school does not have the funds this year to give us new balls, jump ropes, bean bags, and other materials to work our our gross and fine motor skills at recess and PE time. In our ball bucket, we have 2 flat balls, 1 soccer ball, and 2 jumpropes. The other 3 teachers have the same issues.
If we are able to get our project funded, we can share these materials to help our 100 kindergartners, four classes, work on their health, motor skills, and teamwork!
For example, the balls can be used for recess and to practice hand-eye coordination. The jump ropes will help students with balance and jumping abilities. Not only would we be able to use this for outside PE lessons, but we could incorporate PE skills, like corn hole and bean bags, in our core instruction. We will use corn hole to motivate students to learn sight words, facts, and work as a team. Our students learn best with hands-on materials. Thank you in advance for helping our active and avid learners!
