My Students

My students are inquisitive learners coming from diverse backgrounds. Movement is an essential part of their day. I am fortunate to instruct movement class for them. I get to work with eight different classes throughout the school week. Students learn how to coordinate and control their small and large muscles in my class. They also have a chance to let out some of their energy, as we run, march, hop, and skip.

My students love movement class because they have a chance to move their bodies and have fun at the same time.

They also have a chance to leave their classrooms and explore their gross motor skills in a big space.

My Project

These new movement materials will give my students new opportunities to explore their gross motor skills. I teach movement class through center time. By helping us to obtain these new movement supplies, my students will continue to enjoy moving their bodies.

The tunnels are perfect for my pre-k students!

They love to crawl and move around. The ring toss supplies will allow my students to practice their hand-eye coordination skills. The balance beams will challenge my movement students to maintain their balance in new ways. My movement students can’t wait to use all of ther new equipment in movement class!
