I have the privilege of working with some of the most hardworking students I have ever met. They might come from low-income, high-poverty areas, but their thirst for knowledge is inspiring. Our school is Title I where the majority of students get free or reduced-price lunch. Even though every student understands where they come from, when they come to my class, they are like every other child in the world. They love music, sports, TV, movies, and video games. They are smart, funny, creative, happy, and motivated young people.
I am continuously changing my interactive classroom. I am always looking for new, interesting ways for my students to remain active throughout the day.
I will be using this "Fit Desk" in one of my stations to keep students engaged throughout the lesson.
When students have an opportunity to be active and work out during the day, they are more productive, the students feel better throughout the day, and when students are active, they build more confidence leading to a better lifestyle.
The obesity rates in our country are forever growing. We as Health and Physical Education teachers need to figure out ways to help our students learn how to become a healthier version of themselves.
