B.A.L.L-Being Active Lifelong Learners

My Students

Full of energy and inquiry are the first descriptions that come to mind when describing my 8th grade students. My students are eager to incorporate wellness into their everyday life and they are are eager to learn and use wellness as an outlet for their built up energy.

Kind, passionate, and full of love for activity is how I describe my students.

They would love to get more minutes of activity in my class, but with limited amount of equipment our games are large and students are not maximizing their time in class

My Project

A simple classroom set of PE balls will help to facilitate smaller games in my classroom. Sport time helps to create engaging lessons by providing various colors of equipment!! So easy to create innovative games by color coding the teams and equipment!

Teaching PE with limited equipment would be like asking a language arts teacher to teach The Giver with only one copy of the book!

Our district values wellness and this year we were lucky enough to add three new wellness teachers to our staff! However we are now dividing equipment among eight teachers. Funding this simple set of classroom balls will allow our classes to play many games with much smaller numbers!
