Coming back to in-person learning from the pandemic, my 28 students need to build physical endurance and coordination skills. We began our fitness journey with calisthenics and walking, but would like to increase our exercise by playing sports.
My Title I students need to build skills such as dribbling, passing, throwing, and shooting.
Many of my students do not have access to outside sports teams, and are in the house after school. Because so many do not play outside or on sports teams, we need to meet that need during the school day.
It is important to get all students moving again after being home during the pandemic, which is why I'm asking for 16 basketballs for my 28 Title I students. All basketballs will help my students build coordination skills, physical endurance, basketball skills, and teamwork. Because they are from low socio-economic homes, most of my students do not have access to extra curricular sports teams. Looking ahead, with the basketballs, we can build the physical endurance and skills necessary to play intramural sports when they move onto middle school next year.
