Our school is a dual immersion school and mostly consists of students where Spanish is spoken at home and English is their second language. Our school's mission is to prepare our students to become bilingual, bi-literate and bi-cultural so that they have the tools to succeed. We are a Title 1 school and most families are in the low income bracket.
My students love to be physically active and are always excited to come to P.E.
They love to run and try new activities. They might complain about something they've never tried before, but once they start getting the hang of it, they don't want to stop.
Our P.E. class times are too short and not as frequent as I would like, but we make the most of the time we have.
Some of the state Physical Education standards for multiple grades are, for students to strike an object using an implements. Pickle ball uses paddles and would help them to learn to us implements which can benefit them in learning other sports such as tennis and racquetball. Because we don't have the facilities for tennis or racquetball, pickle ball would be a good beginning for my students in learning to use implements.
Pickle ball is also a sport that my student could play their entire lives.
Pickle ball is a sport that is enjoyed by all ages. One of my goals as a physical education teacher is to help students find a physical activity they enjoy and will want to participate in their entire lives. I feel that pickle ball is one of those activities.
