Our children are growing up in a world where x-box and playstation are their main sources of physical activity. In order to guide our students towards a healthier lifestyle and to help them on the road to physical fitness, we are required to provide our children with 30 minutes of daily P.E. (the activity formerly known as recess). I am a first grade teacher in a Title 1 school with 22 students. Because of limited playground equipment, my children play a lot of tag and run a lot of laps around a track. In addition to these traditonal activites, I would like to have more exercise/game equipment where the students could participate in free and organized play. I am asking for fun flyers, a small rainbow parachute, hopping sacks, and soccer balls from Lakeshore. In addition to the above I would like to have velcro mitts and scoop sets from Sportime. I chose these companies because of their high quality and their great selections. Having this equipment will ensure that my students have a variety of activites that can be used individually and in small and large groups. Thank you for considering my proposal and for giving my students the opportunity to literally hop, skip, and jump into a more active lifestyle.
