My Students

My students are hard working kids with diverse backgrounds in a Title I (urban) District. Although our P.E. equipment may be older, the students still find P.E. a positive resource and allow their hard work and determination to come alive! Although our Physical Education equipment may be older, the students still find joy in the physical education classroom and allow their creativity and enthusiasm to shine! As one team at our school, we strive to work hard everyday in and outside of the classroom. My students are not afraid to take chances and explore challenges within physical education classroom. We work on many different skills and dive into various sports/activities that the students may or may not have seen before.

It is our mission as teachers to expose students to different ways they can stay active and healthy and generalize these skills into their community environments.

These skills are the foundation to achieving life-long wellness which students are encouraged to partake in. My students are dedicated to their studies and deserve new equipment to set them up for a long, healthy life.

My Project

Physical education is essential for students in all grades. It is the foundation of life-long wellness and promotes practicing healthy habits for life. The materials listed will make a HUGE impact on my students' educational experience and help them develop proper gross and fine motor skills to benefit them for future success. The materials listed will encourage student engagement and allow for students to work on these skills:

-balance

-throwing

-catching

-body-space awareness/safety

-build movement competence

-sharpen knowledge for strategy

-overall health/wellness

For example, with the letter bean bags, we are learning how to engage and incorporate spelling/letter recognition along with physical activity. We are learning personal space and body-space awareness while giving our body and minds a good workout! Letter bean bags are fun and engaging which promote health and physical wellness.

These materials are basic physical education equipment the students are in need of. The hula hoops will be used within most units. The yarn balls, bean bags, and playground balls are used for a combination of units to help with hand-eye coordination such as throwing, catching and kicking skills and several team sports. All of the equipment will be stored safely to maintain for years to come for all the incoming students.
