Mrs. R. from Tampa FL is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Physical Motivation

My students need lots of new and exciting pieces of P.E. equipment to help physically motivate them.

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I aim to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

They like to be active, have fun, learn new things and love lots of positive attention.

Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of lifetime fitness.

My Project

If my project is funded, I will use the materials to fully support the rebuilding of my school's physical education program. For a very long time the school has gone without proper equipment and funding for PE. With the new materials I will be able to excite my students and myself with introducing new curriculum that will improve their school lives.

I will be able to teach my students units that they have never experienced before due to lack of materials.

The new equipment will help pump life back into my program and motivate my students to be physically active. Our school does not have a gymnasium, therefore we are outside teaching every day. My project is asking for a sound system that will allow us to be motivated with music. The system also comes with a wireless microphone that will help amplify my voice outside and will come in handy being that we are next to an interstate. I would like to integrate more technology into my classes. I am also asking for pedometers that would help my students keep track of their fitness and reach their daily 10,000 step goal. My program does not have volleyball standards, targets, fun manipulative's and storage containers. I am also asking for these products to enhance my program. Thank you for considering to fund my project!
