Ms. Ponce from Washington DC is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

The players on my team work hard and love soccer but need help developing their spatial concepts and basic soccer skills.

The players on this team are a diverse group of students.

Over half of the students are English Language Learners and almost all receive free or reduced price lunch. Some of the players have experience with soccer but many are learning the sport for the first time, and all of them are new to playing on a team. Since we are located in the middle of the city, tucked into the neighborhood, we don't have a field of our own. Three days a week the team walks to the nearby park to get open space to play. Unfortunately, there are no goals and no lines to help students orient themselves and gain the experience of practicing on a real soccer field.

My Project

The materials from this project will provide a portable field for the team to take to practice each day. The portable field will be made of pop-up goals and cones. The vests will help students play meaningful drills and scrimmages. With the help of these materials, players will be able to work on their spatial awareness practicing things like body position, body orientation, and how to use open space on the field. Additionally, this project includes first aid supplies for minor scrapes and injuries that occur throughout the season. All these materials will truly help the team get ready for weekly game days!

Your donations to this project will help students improve their understanding of soccer skills as well as learn to work cooperatively as a team.

Donations will give students a sense of pride and ownership as they create their own field to play on each day of practice.
