My Students

Students come into gym ready to move and learn the importance of health-related fitness as well as setting personal health goals. They recognize the relationship between physical fitness and good health including mental, physical and social health.

Most of my students are from low socioeconomic backgrounds and live in rural areas with little to no access to recreation centers or organized team activities.

Our school is small and surrounded by a farming community, and many children are bused in from the surrounding areas. My students love Physical Education where they get to move everyday. PE is the most requested elective at our school with a total of 500 students enrolled over the course of a year.

My Project

The pool noddles will support motivational warm-up games and core lesson activities that engage students in skill-related fitness. These noddles will enhance activities they already really like and add a safety element because they are made of foam. Foam noddles are safe and easy to use for playing tag and other games and, they are a way students do not have to touch other students. These activities do not focus on the "product" of fitness like regular sports based games, rather they help students to achieve excellence in fitness using balance, coordination, eye hand coordination, body mind connection and motor skill development.

Our school does not have money to fund new equipment every year.

We are consistently striving to make physical education at our school new and different to keep kids moving and active as well as enjoying physical activity to create lifelong skills that will help them strive towards personal fitness success as young adults and adults. We want to teach them to participate in physical activity outside of class for a lifetime so that it will enhance their overall well being and be rewarding.
