Ms. Caione from Everett WA is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Maximize Fun at Recess

My students need playground equipment such as soccer balls, soccer goals, footballs, cones, and jump ropes so they have fun activities to do at recess.

My Students

My students have completely changed my life. They inspire me to appreciate what I have, to overcome obstacles, and look at the bright side of life. I have students of all ages from kindergarten to fifth grade who deal with challenges such as homelessness, gangs, hunger, and violence. School is a happy, safe place to them which is why I work to create the best possible learning environment for each and every child that I come into contact with.

Regardless of their challenges, these students are the most amazing, hopeful, hardworking children that I have ever met.

They motivate me every day to be the best teacher I can be so that I can help them to be the best people possible.

My Project

There isn't enough time in the day to teach our kids everything they need to know, and give them sufficient time to play, as children should. When recess time is unstructured, or there aren't enough activities to do, kids get bored, or get into trouble. With a school as big as mine is, we have many kids on the playground at once, searching for things to do.

The materials such as soccer balls and footballs in this project will provide all students in my school with organized, fun activities to do at recess.

Not only will they have fun, but they will also be exercising, and developing athleticism. I’d like to set up different games on different parts of the playground. Our kids love soccer, but use a fence as a goal. We don’t have any jump ropes, or basketballs for kids. I even included a kids bowling set. These resources would make recess something to look forward to.
