My students need pulse bars for our physical education program to help them better understand cardiovascular endurance, a component of fitness we highlight in each class.
One of my everyday goals is to provide students with a dynamic and meaningful learning environment where they can grow into physically educated individuals. Another goal is to encourage students to challenge themselves to be better than they were in the previous attempt, lesson or unit.
My building is a Kindergarten through 5th grade school.
Our community is a unique family of diverse learners. Regardless of social, economic or cultural backgrounds, we guide our students to empower themselves to become lifelong learners. Our staff feeds off of the enthusiasm and focus of our principal as we strive to achieve this goal.
Throughout the year, I teach the students about the components of physical fitness. They include muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, cardiovascular endurance and body composition. I strive to teach my students how daily exercise is beneficial to their overall health and well being. The pulse bars will be a valuable asset to my physical education program because it will provide my students with instant feedback on how exercise affects their heart rate. During our fitness unit, students will perform a variety of individual and partner challenges while trying to maintain their target heart rate. The pulse bars would be strategically located around the perimeter of the gym. Students would go over to the nearest pulse bar and check their heart rate. A heart rate chart would be located above the monitor so students could instantly see if their heart rate was in the healthy heart rate zone.
Donations would help to achieve my goal of maintaining a high level of quality physical education for the students at my school.
Tools like the pulse bars would be a valuable asset to helping students better understand one of the components of fitness, cardiovascular endurance. Developing students into physically educated individuals has been a daily goal. The pulse bars and knowledge of how to maintain a healthy physical lifestyle will hopefully be tools that my students can use.Read More
