Fitness Matters

My students need physical education equipment to become physically fit and enjoy learning new games.

My Students

I have a wonderful group of First Grade students who are always excited about responsibility and learning. My students love to describe and talk about what we are doing in our classroom. We have a brand new gym in our school and my students would like to put it to good use. My students need physical education equipment to get them running around while out at recess and during P.E. Let's make these kids physically fit. Are You ready! Let make it happen!

My Project

My students need a variety of sports equipment for P.E. and recess including, 6 Whale Skin" Foam Dodgeball, , Educational Insights Alpha Catch Phonics Game and, thumball My ABCs 6". With the resources that I have requested, my students will be able to strengthen their motor skills through simple games. They will also learn coordination by learning how to bounce, catch, and dribble a ball. Next, they will learn teamwork by meeting the objectives of each game. Finally, they will learn how important it is to keep their minds and bodies physically fit.

Donations to this project will improve my classroom by designing it to be more inclusive, active, and fun than traditional PE classes.

It will help my students seek out physical activity and develop a lifetime commitment to wellness. It will also allow my students to develop skills and teamwork capabilities so they feel more comfortable in both group and movement environments, making them more likely to seek out these environments on their own or to be asked by others to participate.
