My students, from grades K-6, are full of energy and are always looking forward to P.E. They love to do all the different activities that I provide for them. I love how each individual has a special strength in P.E. but are also willing to improve in areas that they are not so strong in. These students are an amazing bunch and having P.E. for them will give them a long, healthy lifestyle of exercising on a daily basis.
The State and National Standards require P.E. teachers to teach students specific manipulative skills. So without basketballs, I'm unable to effectively teach these valuable skills. These basketballs will help all K-6 students learn dribbling skills as well as shooting a basketball through a hoop. It will also build on social interaction and group dynamics by productively participating in small and large groups.
Students can build on teamwork by passing and have more opportunity to master their basketball skills.
Learning to play basketball and work on the fundamental skills can help students with life long skills and living a healthy life!
