My Students

A typical day in my classroom is me setting up the gym with the activity of the day I plan on doing with the students. I want my students at the end of the year to be able to tell their parents that they learned multiple sport skills. My biggest challenge is providing them with the proper equipment

My students are like any other children.

They love to play and be active, and they love to learn. My school is diverse in culture. We have all different types ranging from all ethnic backgrounds. I would describe my students as eager children want to be educated.

My Project

My students would use the new equipment for all different types of activities such as basketball. We play basketball for a few months a year. All my grade levels will learn the correct way to dribble a ball. The older students will learn to shoot the ball the correct way.

It will improve my classroom and student interaction since we don't have enough good basketballs in my school.

I have roughly 4 good basketballs and with close to 550 students, and it is hard to keep them in good shape. The new equipment will change their lives because with new basketballs in the gym, they can learn the correct techniques used in basketball activities.
