My students need access to a variety of sports balls including volleyballs and dodgeballs to practice honing their throwing, catching, and dodging skills for fall sports seasons.
Kids at our school love to stay active! Our Bulldogs are always on the go and we teachers are constantly finding ways to incorporate that love of movement into as many parts of our school day as possible! Students at our school know that character counts and we celebrate successes in teamwork, citizenship, sportsmanship, kindness and respect.
I teach P.E.
to all junior high students (6-8th grade) in a "Schools To Watch" designated school in Northern California. Over 67% of our student population--which is over 600 students-- qualify for the federal free or reduced lunch program. We have a large proportion of students who speak English as a second language. Additionally, many of our families qualify for other federal aid and do not have many resources with which to empower their children as learners.
What's great is that our students are resilient. They love being challenged and with the right reinforcement they often tend to work harder than they ever thought they could! I seek to provide more P.E. resources for these students so that they can untap their potential to make positive and healthy choices for their minds and bodies as they grow.
This project is focused on providing more volleyballs, dodgeballs, and bean bags to our P.E. program. We are also seeking equipment to aid in our annual Fitnessgram testing. The volleyballs are for sport-specific skill practice. The dodgeballs and bean bags are used in a wide variety of cooperative and competitive games and are used weekly! We use this equipment to practice concepts like throwing for accuracy and promoting hand-eye coordination.
Kids love playing games, and access to proper equipment allows us to play a variety of engaging cooperative games.
From these games students don't just learn motor skills, they learn teamwork, communication, and the concept of sportsmanship.
