My Students

My classroom is full of students excited about learning. They are a diverse group of children but all are eager to learn. They are willing to try new things and participate in any activity. They are active and insightful. All of this energy sometimes needs an outlet not provided in the classroom.

My students need some new physical education equipment to keep their bodies moving while we are at recess.

In order to do their best in the classroom, my students need to have an active recess. Please help us accomplish this.

My Project

Recess is such an important part of the day. Students need to be physically active to perform well in the classroom. In order to provide students with an active recess, we need equipment. We don't go out to the playground. Our recess area is on the track and field.

In order to get students moving I need some equipment they want to use.

I love organizing and playing games with my students. It is amazing how quickly our equipment, purchased by me, the teacher, gets lost or broken. It just has to be replaced. Please consider helping my students get active.
