My Students

Our school is an elementary (Pre-K - 5th grade) Title I school in a diverse area. Our students come from low-income families and rarely have the opportunity to experience much outside of their neighborhood. We service ESL (English Second Language) and hearing impaired students as well as our regular and special education students. This is what makes our school unique!

Our K-5 students love PE class!

At our school, each grade level receives PE instruction daily for 45 minutes. Our students are eager to learn and I am eager to provide my students with this opportunity! Our students look forward to PE and being able to play and socialize in a healthy and fun way!

The biggest hurdle for our PE department is we do not have a gym to store equipment or for our students to play activities in. Our students are outside in the elements (hot or cold) to play activities/games. During rainy days, our students have to stay in the classroom.

I believe that if these students received the proper equipment it would make their PE class a better place to learn while they are having fun!

My Project

Our school does not have a gym or a dedicated PE room. Our students are outside for PE daily. We have up to 80 students at PE at one time so it is hard to bring them into a classroom to watch instructional videos. Having an outside projector and screen will allow our students to watch exercise videos as they exercise. Also, having a dedicated laptop to go with the projector and screen will be helpful. Having the laptop will allow us to search the internet for follow along exercises and dance routines. The students will be able to follow along with the exercise routines as they watch. The projector and screen will also be used to allow students to watch videos of instruction for different sport activities we teach throughout the year. It will allow the students to see a visual as we are teaching. Having a projector and screen would be a great asset to our PE classes.
