Ms. Poenisch from Detroit MI is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the chance to play a variety of games using different skills. The scooters are useful for developing arm strength, balance, agility, and can be used for racing, tag games, and obstacle course.
Our students are living in the poorest city in the nation, and the percentage performing below grade level is high. They struggle to get to school with clean clothes and proper shoes. They often move a lot and are raised by one adult and older siblings. They grow up with drugs, crime, violence, and guns. Not uncommon to hear about children sleeping on the floor and parents who do not come home at night. Despite these hardships, they are good kids, funny, honest, kind to each other, and get excited about learning. It is heartwarming to keep in touch with them after they leave and hear about their successes.
The scooters will be useful for playing different games, pretending to be part of winter Olympics, tagging others, and relays. They build strength and coordination. Scooters give students a sense of independence and mobility, and all students can become proficient using them. They build leg, core, and arm muscles. The cones are useful for building hurdles, making activity stations or goals. They are good for obstacle courses, and directing students on a designated path or in a designated area. The colors make it easy to assign groups or teams. The cones allow for signs to be posted anywhere in the gym.
