Scooter Boards - Rolling Into Fun!

My students need scooter board activities to support team building. Team building skills help our students develop trust, enhance social relationships through collaborative efforts and assist with problem solving.

My Students

I teach Physical Education to very talented students at a performing arts high school in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. Our students travel from all over the city to study theater, dance, music and visual arts along with a rigorous academic education. Students are culturally and socioeconomically diverse. Our students come together with many different challenges and needs. We try to create a space where students feel safe to express their thoughts and ideas. My goal is to create an environment where learning health and well-being is part of their complete education.

My Project

Every opportunity to have our students work together to improve the learning experience, increase physical activity and have fun is the basics of a great P.E. program.

Scooter boards are an exciting addition to any Physical Education program.

Students are looking forward to trying their skills on these durable boards with wheels. Used as a great motivator for team building activities, students also are able to create exercises to enhance endurance, flexibility and strength. As we prepare our students for their annual Fitnessgram testing, we are using many different activities to build overall fitness with lots of fun built in.

Our goal is to:

* Build core, arms, legs, and hands strengthen

* Provides a great cardiovascular workout

* Increases overall physical endurance

* Enhances sports participation such as hockey, basketball and beach ball volleyball

*Creates collaborative opportunities for all levels of physical abilities

My philosophy is "EVERYONE CAN". I will see to it that all students, regardless of their athletic ability, will have a variety of opportunities in Physical Education to enrich their lives through physical activity, education, and FUN!
