Help me give my students soft frisbees, challenge mats, and juggling balls. These activities will help build upper arm strength, creative thinking, and boost academic learning.
I am a P.E. Specialist at a school with promising outcomes of growth in many areas. Our students are busily engaged in the Title I and Turn Around programs. This means that a majority of our students come from diverse, low income, single and two parent homes. It is just the right mix. We have student leaders who set a great example to others who need a little nudge and encouragement. Together they make our school a great place to be, work, and learn.
We are an older school with not the best amenities but I have always referred to us as a “Diamond in the Rough”.
Our students might not have the "best" of everything materialistically but our school and all those inside make for the "best" education possible.
P.E. is another place in our school for students to try and learn new things. A place where our kids might excel other than in the classroom. It has been noted that movement is a key in doing well academically. Our test scores improved this past year and we're celebrating! I want to continue to do my part by providing our kids with the best P.E. program I can offer.
Many people are not aware that participating in Physical Education can help boost academic learning. Being active helps kids to concentrate more, stay on task and helps their memory which in turns effects their learning. I want to continue to help in this process by providing activities in P.E that motivate and capture all students to have a desire to MOVE!
Many students don't realize how much creative activities make them think and challenge them.
So I always try to slip in as many as I can. Juggling, the mat challenge, and frisbees are just a few to mention. They all help students practice making smart choices. This will help them in life and in the classroom.
I also want to zero in on developing upper arm strength. It seems this is lacking in most students but especially in girls. All the activities that I want to purchase help with this development. It takes baby steps to make changes and progress but I'll catch them one way or another!!!
