My Students

Some days I need a reminder that what I am doing as a teacher matters to my students. It can get really hard when we are stuck inside the gym during the winter months. Why do I actually like my students, let alone love them? When taking a moment to reflect on reasons, I see the good in my kiddos. It makes me a better teacher and motivates me to come up with the best learning strategies possible. So here are some reasons why I love my students:

* They make me laugh.

They say the funniest things.

* They are endearing. They have the sweetest smiles.

* They teach me things. They should teach a class in 6th grade lingo.

* They humble me. A Christmas card I received read "Thanks for not

yelling at us".

* They make me a better person. Patience is key.

My Project

Basketball is a great way for kids to get active and have fun. As well as being a great way to stay fit, basketball can also help kids make new friends and learn how to be a good teammate. It can be played by people of all ages and abilities. Basketball can be practiced alone and games can be played with as few as two people. There are so many variations of games that can be played with a basketball. The choices are almost endless. In order to play some of those games, you need the proper lines and dimensions marked on the court. Our outdoor court lines are pretty much non-existent.

Please help us revive the basketball court lines so we can get those skills and drills going again.

I have requested the basketball court stencil kit, striping paint, and striping wands. Thanks for stopping by & thank you in advance. Can't wait to share the finished project with you!
