My Students

Please help my students! I am an adapted physical education teacher, who teaches all ages of students pre-school through age 21 with special needs. They can play any game, but need the correct equipment to be successful!

Please help my students get new equipment to work with during DAPE class My students really enjoy playing outside and being active, during this class we make that happen!

My students will appreciate all of the new equipment! Thank you for helping my students :)

My Project

I teach Adapted Physical Education and many of my students have a difficult time catching typical equipment. I want them to have catch mits (velcro mits that the ball can stick to) beachballs that we can play volley ball with. Hula hoops for personal space.

Yoga cards are great visuals and nice for practice balancing!

The Fingerlight balls are amazing and almost like a tough balloon, they stay in the air for longer!!

I would love to do stations with my students since they thrive on routine, and having the cones with the cone covers to put their activities in would make this possible. My students are so fun to teach and with the right equipment they can have more fun being active and improving their health. Thank you!!
