My Students

My students live in three rural communities in Webster Parish. We are located in North Louisiana. My students are eager to learn and are willing to try challenging activities. They love to compete with each other and also to assist each other when needed. I encourage each of them to strive to do their very best at all times so as to be productive citizens in the future. Giving them an opportunity to become artists will provide them a chance to create a product and be proud in what they create.

My Project

The products that I have selected will help my students have additional equipment when doing physical education activities. The parachutes will help my students with coordination and will promote teamwork. The rugged parachutes encourage noncompetitive, cooperative play. When children make the parachutes billow, they strengthen shoulder, arm and hand muscles, refine motor skills and develop a sense of rhythm. The Hop-Along Balls are big on bounce and full of nonstop muscle-building fun. These will be perfect for use indoors or outside on the grass. The balls feature specially designed, easy-grip handles that provide maximum comfort and control and they’re flexible.
