A Fight to Preserve Physical Education

The cost of 2 packs of 12 Plastic Hoops (30") from Sportime, Inc. is $84, 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>.

With all the new standards and pressures to increase test scores in reading, writing, and arithmetic, students' exposure to physical education has decreased. Yet, studies show that increased physical activity not only helps children to sharpen their fine motor skills, but also their visuo-spatial development. Moreover, with increased visuo-spatial development and fine motor skills, students will be more likely to excel in reading, writing, and in arithmetic. Understanding the importance of physical education for developing children, I have made efforts to preserve time for physical education in my second grade classroom, but I am in need of a class set of P.E. equipment supplies. For my students, I would like to have a class set of hula-hoops, which I believe can be used in many interactive but non-aggressive activities.
