My Students

I teach at a wonderful elementary in a small rural district. Our building is small enough that everyone knows everyone. Physical Education is always a fun rotation class. We offer PE to all K-5 students. These students do not have much of a chance to explore the world past the edges of our small town. Many of our school families face daily struggles. More than 56% of our school family is free and reduced lunch students. This physical education class is a place where students can release some energy, learn about their bodies and experience success conquering tasks.

My students are excited about learning, playing and challenging their bodies and minds.

They love coming to physical education class and learning about teamwork, determination, getting healthy and learning new strategies they can use in school and outside of school.

I would love to start cardio drumming with my elementary students. I am asking for a set of cardio drumming tubs that hold the exercise balls. I already have drumsticks and cardio balls for each student. Also, I already have a playlist of many cardio drumming workouts for the elementary students.

Cardio drumming combines the mental health benefits of drumming with the overall health benefits of physical fitness for a full body workout.

Everyone needs a chance to get their bodies moving and their minds engaged with physical activity, before sitting down to focus or learn. Cardio drumming gets the entire body and mind working together in unison, allowing students to focus, become fully engaged and increase their performance in all subject areas.
