Mrs. Ross from Mooreland OK is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Recess, Recess, What Do You See?

My students need balls, training ropes, a skip ball set and chalk to provide brain breaks, socialization, and exercise that they may not receive anywhere aside from school.

My Students

Class, Class, What do you see? I see a teacher that cares about me. Hello.....We come from a rural Oklahoma school. My students are amazing! They are more than just my students, they are like my own children. "We are a team, and we are a family!", these are the words that come from my mouth. Every day, this wonderful team has brought me new and exciting adventures.

Teacher, Teacher, What do you see?

I see 26 kiddos looking at me. My kiddos are unique individuals that come from different backgrounds and situations, but they normally come to school every day excited and eager to learn. They work hard all day long in the classroom, and they deserve the opportunity to have brain breaks, to socialize, to play, and exercise.

My Project

Recess, Recess, What Do You See? I See Children Enjoying Me! Recess is a wonderful time for children to take a break from all that is expected of them in the classroom every day. When my students go out to recess, they are prepared to play and socialize.

We are fortunate to have a 20 minute recess; However, we only have one rubber kickball and two basketballs for not only my 26 students to utilize, but approximately 100 other children that want to play too.

You see....we share a recess with 1st-3rd grade classes, so children that want to get their hands on a ball can feel overwhelmed.

Donors, Donors, What Will You See? You will see that donations to this recess equipment project would allow 1st-3rd graders to play with their classmates in a variety of ways. The footballs and basketballs will allow the children to play our most popular sports. The rubber recess balls will allow children to play kickball or simply play catch with one another. The hula-hoops, skip and jump swing ball set, jump ropes, and sidewalk chalk will allow the children to have a more relaxed recess experience. Lastly, the solid steel cart will be able to easily carry and store all of our recess equipment. I would love to have your support to make recess an enjoyable experience with a variety of equipment that all children can benefit from. Thank you for your consideration!
