My Students

As the school’s Health and P.E. teacher, I have the pleasure of seeing every student in the school every day of the week! My students have really embraced P.E. as a time to not only get moving and have fun but to learn about how to live a healthy lifestyle! Students love sharing how they are eating healthy and exercising. They are constantly sharing stories about how they take what they have learned in my class and apply it to their lives outside of school.

My Project

To perform well in the classroom, students need strong core muscles. Bosu Balance Trainers are versatile pieces of equipment that can help all of my students in K-5 improve not only their core strength, but their balance, trunk control, upper and lower body strength, cardiorespiratory endurance, motor planning, and overall body awareness. Bosu Balance Trainers are flat on the bottom and round on the top, and they can be used either with the flat side down on the floor or with the round side on the floor, making them adaptable for all ages and abilities.

Students in grades K-5 will utilize the Bosu Balance Trainers in a variety of ways including but most definitely not limited to: bouncing on them to get their heart rates up, using them as pretend surfboards to practice their pop-ups while improving their upper body strength, and standing or sitting in the middle of the ball trying to maintain their balance all the while working on their core strength.
