Improving Hand-Eye Coordination with Speed Stacks

My students need speed stacks to work on hand-eye coordination which aid in the development of neural pathways between the right and left sides of the brain.

My Students

Students need more opportunities to improve their hand-eye coordination. Research indicates that brain function increases as hand-eye coordination improves.

As a physical education teacher, my students range from pre-K to 6th grade.

I work with kids from 4 years old to 12 years old. My school is located in CA in a neighborhood where students are provided breakfast from a federally funded program. Students come from a wide variety of backgrounds, including single parents, living with grandparents/extended family members, and parents who are or have been incarcerated. They come to school everyday because it is the most consistent thing in their lives. It adds a stability that may not be available in the home. My school has a large population of students that claim English as a second language. This adds another layer of difficulty to their ability to succeed.

My Project

These speed stacks will be used for the rainy season when physical education cannot be done outdoors. They improve hand-eye coordination which will give children a different opportunity to increase brain function. Students will be able to work individually as well as in small groups while using these speed stacks. Students will have a chance to work on patterns and repetition. Speed stacks help with coordination of the right and left sides of the body which help with the connection of the right and left sides of the brain. Speed stacks will give students a unique way to improve brain function, which in turn will help with their language and math development.

These speed stacks will allow students a productive and meaningful way to have physical education indoors when the weather does not allow for it outside.

This allows students to have physical education despite what mother nature says.
