Pogos and Spikes and Everything Nice!

Help me give my students the opportunity to get active in a fun and exciting new way. By getting several Spike ball sets and pogo sticks this should fire them up!

My Students

I am very grateful to work with a diverse student demographic ranging from all ethnic backgrounds. I teach students with learning and physical disabilities as well as those who English is there second language. Majority of my students are Title I children who need everyday assistance with food, clothing and other materials.

My students ROCK at making the best of every situation even during difficult times or when times are hard.

Even though they are middle school children they strive to better themselves mentally and choose to make the positive choices in their lives.

My Project

My project is to help students have a better understanding of how play and physical fitness interact and lead to a healthier lifestyle. Spike ball is a new take on volleyball. Students will engage on teams, or individually, by trying to score points against each other in a fun, strategic, yet interactive way. The pogo stick is a nostalgic, yet hilarious way to get students to challenge each other to see who can get the most jumps in one turn.

If we give our students new and different activities, they are more likely to go home and continue playing which would lead to a healthier lifestyle.

When students are having fun, they are more likely to repeat the activities they are engaging in. Students will be more receptive to a healthy lifestyle if they understand that it does not have to be stagnant and boring. It can be creative. Help us teach the next generation the importance of play.
