My Students

I just started teaching my students, so I am still getting to know them. It is a very diverse school with students of varying interests from what I am told. The other physical education teacher I am co-teaching with informed me that many of the students enjoy physical activity and exercise. My school is in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, so all the students live in an urban area.

Again, since I am a new teacher in a school with over a thousand students, and I see nearly all of them; I am still doing my best to get to know them on an individual level as much as I possibly can.

It is my hope that I will get to know my students through engaging lessons that will warrant their interest in physical education. I will be more capable of engaging my students during lessons if I have the proper equipment and materials needed for physical education.

My Project

This project will help provide my students with the means for quality physical education.

The primary thing I need for this project is a sit and reach box so my students can do as well as possible on their sit and reach fitness gram assessment.

The fitness gram is a national fitness assessment measuring students on the 5 components of fitness.

The other materials requested will ensure that all students have the necessary equipment for physical education and reduce idle time. I am starting manipulative units that involve dribbling a basketball with your hands and a soccer ball with your feet. I would very much like to have enough basketballs and soccer balls for all my students to have one in a class.
