Mrs. Woods from Galt CA is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

My goal is to make my classroom fun and engaging. I want my students to love coming to school and to be active learners!

I have 24 kindergarten and transitional kindergarten students.

They come to school each day with big smiles on their faces and are ready to learn. I teach in a low-income school with a high number of English language learners. My school is innovative and offers a wide variety of after-school clubs to give opportunities to students that many probably wouldn't have otherwise.

My Project

My kindergartners are excited about our school's goal to promote health and fitness. They love being outdoors and need new equipment to help promote fitness through play.

I am requesting an outdoor speaker with mic, a variety of playground balls, a ball inflator, and a giant Kerplunk game.

Research shows how important it is to get kids moving.

We need a variety of playground and soccer balls for outdoor games. The giant Kerplunk game will be used as a twist on a relay game. Students will race in teams to pull a straw and hopefully avoid all of the balls dropping. The outdoor speaker will be used to play music for the students to dance and exercise to. I am excited to give my students new opportunities for physical fitness through games and play.
