My Students

My students have a lot of enthusiasm and love being active. I work with over 400 students in first through fifth grade. They come from low income families and are second language learners. They are from the inner city and their spirit for learning is one of their strengths. Our school is an older brick building that lacks a gymnasium so most of our physical education classes depend on the weather. When we are indoors we do Health lessons too.

My Project

The elementary school pack of physical education supplies has everything my students need to get moving around and improve their fitness this school year. There are basketballs, footballs, soccer balls, kickballs, frisbees and jump ropes to work on different motor skills such as throwing, catching, kicking, bouncing and jumping. It will assist them to play cooperative games as well by using these various skills. In addition they are organized by color with bags to help with storage and will enable my students to take responsibility in assisting in setting up and cleaning up. The electric pump will also benefit my classes to have our supplies already filled with air and ready to go!
