Mr. Hamms from Laurel MD is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Want To Get Our Bounce On!

My students need more manipulative equipment/balls that they can use for the variety of activities we learn each year. We are requesting the equipment to help us better learn the life-long skills we learn!

My Students

We are a charter school that is a STEM and IT school. The students and parents are engaged and motivated to learn while using technology. The students come from sometimes up to 20 miles away to attend the school.

The kids are creative, willing to try anything at least once, welcoming to new things, but also need to have routines to stay on task and continue with learning while being physically active.

The budget for the PE department for equipment is small, but allows for purchases to replace and add things year to year. However the budget does not allow me to add more technology into the classroom.

My Project

We will be able to practice the skills of throwing, catching, rolling, kicking, punting, passing, and dribbling to manipulate the ball/equipment to learn skills we need to master.

The equipment will allow for differentiated teaching and learning and allow for all of us to become highly successful students while being physically active in PE.

Physical Education has drastically changed and we are always changing the curriculum to effectively change the lives of the students throughout their school careers. We focus on learning and developing skills rather than just rolling the ball out to play with. Assessments, skill-building practice, and skill practice through culminating activities are the new norm for PE. The equipment will be vital for teaching and learning many life-long skills.
