Too Many Playground Balls? Never at My Schools!

The cost of 12 playground balls and 2 soccer balls is $243, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I am a physical education teacher at two elementary schools in rural North Carolina. I really enjoy working with all of my students at both schools. This is my second year with them and I am learning as much from them as they are from me! I do have one large equipment issue. Because I work three days a week at one school and two days a week at the other school, it is difficult to move bags of balls from one school to another. I started working with pre-kindergartners this year and I realize that the average playground ball is still too hard and large for them to catch successfully. I like to pair them up to practice catching and throwing, but they really need their own ball to get used to catching and throwing to themselves. I am requesting 6 sets of playground balls and 6 soft, foam balls so that I can meet the needs of my upper and lower elementary school students. I hope that you will fund this proposal and help me assist my students in the quest for better catching skills!
