Fun Circles!

My students need roller skates. The comfort and enjoyment of skates over blades will make class much more successful. The students love to skate in circles and learning how to socialize adds to the fun!

My Students

Each and every one of my students is amazing! They each have something unique and special about them and its my job to figure it out within the three years they are in my class. Middle School is a tough age to experience and live through and that is why I teach at this level.

My students come from a wide variety of backgrounds with the majority of them being dysfunctional in one way or another.

Along with the different home lives, many of them are also low income. To me, this means there are a lot of experiences they are missing out on and some they are getting that I couldn't even handle.

Along with everything else all students now face technology overload. They love all the gadgets and access to everything but they don't realize what they are doing to themselves. It's incredible to watch them interact with each other and enjoy themselves and not realize it creates a better social atmosphere without something buzzing or beeping.

My Project

I ordered roller skates for the purpose of having fun and learning how to skate. I have several students with larger feet and really struggle with finding something that works for them. Being on skates is not only a physical activity but also where much social interaction takes place. The social world in middle school has a big influence on each and every student.

All students should enjoy their time circling the gym with friends.

Physical Education class must be enjoyable for them to learn to be active for a lifetime. This is one activity that has a big cost but also has a huge impact.
