Good Directions While We Move to the Beat

Help me give my students a portable Bluetooth speaker so that we can hear directions and move to the music better while we work.

My Students

The students at my school are positive and productive. Many of them are so excited to see me when it is their time for physical education that class period. So much so that they come running over to me at the beginning of the period and ask me what we will be doing in class today. They enjoy coming to the gymnasium to see me and move around in ways they cannot do in a regular classroom setting. I enjoy seeing their enthusiasm for a class where learning how to move to stay healthy is key.

My Project

I am working on a project to get a step aerobics unit together for my classroom this year. I have the lesson plans well thought-out, and knowing my students enthusiasm levels for physical education they will be interested. The problem, however is that I will need the supplies to pull this project together.

Having a portable Bluetooth speaker in the new step aerobics class will enable me to get directions out clearly and effectively; and the students will have a better time engaging their muscles while moving to the beat of the music being played.

I have done a step aerobics unit in the past when I was employed at another school district; and I have proven that the students are just that much more engaged when they can hear directions over all the step movements. Some students might not even see it as an exercise task if they are moving to the songs that they are familiar with on the speaker. Please consider donating to this project so that I can deliver an engaging experience through my teaching.
