As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
We have very little physical education supplies to provide our future youth opportunities to enjoy different kinds of physical fitness activities.
Because of limited budgets, we rely on procuring equipment through outside funding. Therefore, a day in my classroom will find me searching for supplies to educate the students.
My students come from war torn countries and are a very diverse population trying to adjust to there new community. They are amazing students that are ready and eager to learn different physical activities. They are also surrounded by a loving staff who do their best to not only teach each and every student but also to provide any additional support necessary to help each child achieve their personal goals.
The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my students already have an impact on my students. The students love to play volleyball, but at the moment we have only one volleyball that is good. Our other volleyballs have holes in them so the air keeps on seeking out. But even with the volleyballs in such shape the students still have a bright smile on their faces while they play.
Our students are from war torn countries and in these sports they seek refuge.
As these sports give are students the opportunity to be kids and to just enjoy themselves. I will be using the equipment for a future volleyball unit that I will like to teach in the near future. With the multiple volleyballs it will allow me to teach a lesson with little to no waiting time. The portable tennis net will help with modifications for students as some students are unable to strike a volleyball over the net they will have a opportunity to play with a lower net. This will promote success and encourage the student to keep on playing volleyball till they are able to get it over a regular size net. But I need your help to make this happen.
