As a teacher in a low-income school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students are creative, clever, and very spontaneous.
They like to move; they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
My students will appreciate and love playing Field Hockey during our weekly P.E. block! The foam hockey sticks and balls will provide many hours of gross motor practice as well as good team sportsmanship. They also will appreciate running around the playing field as well.
The Golf Academy set will introduce the basic putting and chipping skills involved in this sport.
Many students have never played golf and will be tickled to get the chance to learn this very popular sport. My students will be able to practice their eye hand coordination as well as just having FUN! I know they will enjoy the putting and chipping targets that come with this set.
