The students at my school come from all over the greater Minneapolis area and all walks of life. They bring lots of energy and excitement to my gym class, always open to learning new activities, sports, and fitness information.
Our focus in class is always developing skills that help students well beyond the walls of the gym.
They show great ability to cooperate, communicate, persevere and have grit. They build positive relationships with physical activity and healthy living in my class.
Just yesterday, as we were working on speed and accuracy, one of my students shared that the activity was motivating them to try and get close to beating the world record. I saw a strong effort in their focus on practice and decreasing their time, improving their effectiveness on the task at hand.
Help give my students new basketballs as the vast majority of the materials we have are on the verge of being unusable. It is their favorite material in the gym, and our old set has been very well loved. Our balls have bumps, cracks and are worn out. Please help my students to see the value we have for their education and happiness while at school.
Many of my kids have a hard time with gym class and trying new things.
Basketballs and free choice time at the end of class are what motivates them to give other subject matter a try.
