Ms. Sandoval from Oakland CA is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need an air pump and needles to inflate balls and badminton racquets, nets and shuttlecocks.
I teach a group of twenty-four first grade students in one of the cities with the highest crime in the nation. All students at my school site receive a free lunch. A full 97% of my school's student population is Hispanic, and most of them are first-generation in the United States. At least 15% of my students are newcomers to the country. School is one of the only places in which my students interact with someone who speaks academic English.
Living and attending school in a highly impoverished urban setting, my students are not exposed to many educational experiences outside of the classroom.
Exposing my students to different types of learning while keeping them engaged and entertained is very important to me.
I noticed that our recess coach bought two badminton racquets and all the students want to play with them. Having taken a badminton class while I was in college, I am determined to have a badminton team next year. For that, I need all the badminton basics like racquets, birds, and nets. I hope that by participating in this sport some students will be motivated to pursue the sport further or use it as inspirational exercise.
We have other team sports at our school that can use the nets, like volleyball.
For sports that require an inflated ball, I am requesting an automatic air pump and some inflation needles. I hope you can contribute to making this possible.
