My Students

I work with 4th and 5th grade special needs students. Each of my students has different strengths and weaknesses. They are all sweet and loving children.

My special needs students' lives were severely impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

My students need consistency and stability in order for them to reach their highest level of potential success possible. I love my precious students and would like to give them the best chance possible to succeed, not only at school but later in life as well.

My Project

I have found that if I add short workout sessions in between lessons that my students are more focused and less likely to get into trouble. Many times students go home and play video games after school. They no longer play outside. I hope to teach them that physical activity can be fun.

With these materials I plan to have my life skills students up and moving doing activities like cardio drumming.

My class loves music and many of the fitness things we do involve dancing or drumming with unsharpened pencils in the air. With the real material I envision my students willingly participating and begging for more time to work out.
