My Students

I teach the whole school of over 600 K-6th grade students every week. We are a diverse community. More than a third of our students are from low income households. My students love to move, play, and have fun! For some of our students, PE might be the only time they are able to play. My goal is to keep students active more than 70% of class time.

With a limited number of quality equipment, it is hard for students to stay active because they are waiting.

To give my students the best PE possible, the students need more developmentally appropriate equipment. New equipment will help students attain the state standards for motor skills. Kindergarteners work towards dribbling with one hand, as well as being able to volley a lightweight object. With the equipment I have right now, students will have a hard time being able to play because the basketballs and volleyballs are too big and too heavy for them.

My Project

I am starting my fourth year of teaching physical education, but this is my first year at this school. The equipment in my closet is too old and too big for the younger students.

This donation would allow me to give my students a variety of equipment to choose from to develop their skills, to be more successful, and to stay active!

The smaller sized basketballs will allow those with smaller hands to dribble and shoot better. The soft and light volleyballs will help students to be more successful when passing, setting, and serving. The oversized volleyball will be used for a fun culminating game to end the unit. When students have equipment that they are successful with, they are more likely to keep playing outside of class.
