Ms. Horn from Edmond OK is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Want A Wii

My students need two Wii consoles to use during the colder months when they cannot go outside to play. There are many games that allow for physical activity.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The students at my school love using technology! By having two Wii consoles to use, many students would be able to engage in games that require physical, mental, and hand-eye coordination skills. The units would be great to use both at the Chisholm Corral, P.E., and PTO-sponsored activities.

The students at my school are tech savvy, but not all of them have access to this type of technology.

Many of the kids who will have access to the consoles attend a before/after care program at the school for several hours each day. The school is a public school so funds for these type of items are scarce. This funding source would help them get these learning tools.

My Project

The use of gaming in P.E. would capture the attention of the kids who might be more interested in computers than physical activity. By purchasing games that require physical activity or develop other skills, the children will be learning in a fun way! Technology is such a huge part of kids' lives nowadays. It is a wonderful tool to engage them.

Thank you in advance for helping our school's students be able to learn in both physically and mentally fun ways by incorporating Wii consoles into their days!

Our students will be very excited to use the Wii consoles, especially during the colder months when they can not go outside to play. The P.E. teachers and before/after care program could work together and utilize the items with many of the sport and dance programs, not just the sit and play type games.
