Ms. Zywotko from Pacifica CA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Play Should Be Part Of School! (P.E. Equipment Needed)

My students need a recess pack full of fun balls and activities for recess and a football and a frisbee.

  • $247 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach 20 third graders in a high need, high ELL community. We have minimal resources to buy "extras" for the students.

Recess shouldn't be kids standing around! Or fighting because there isn't anything to do! Each classroom is given 2 balls at the beginning of the year- that's it! We have over 200 kids on our yard at recess and usually about 6 balls. That's just NOT enough for our students to be ACTIVE and play at recess. Often this results in fights because there just isn't enough for them to do! Our students have 2 structures to play on- but with 200 kids at recess- a lot of students are just on the black top with not much to do.

The recess pack has 2 soccer balls, 2 basketballs, 2 skip-its, 7 jump ropes, a foam disc, 3 recess balls and a bag to keep it all in! The additional football and disc will round off the options. Not only my classroom will benefit from this, but also, the other 10 classrooms that are on the yard with us! All of these balls will allow students to use the 4-squares, basketball court AND the open space.

Please help us save recess! Over 200 kids will benefit from this awesome sports equipment! Play, exercise, it should be a part of school and our students just aren't getting this right now. Please help us create an active generation!
